I'm hoping that someone can suggest something better. The URL contains
lots of distracting stuff in addition to the release name. The aim is
that someone who looks at the file can quickly work out what they're
dealing with. Scenario: someone asks a question on the project mailing
list and I think "I bet they're using an old version" and I ask them to

A related thing is this:

   const char* version = "$Name$";

   void usage() {
     printf("Gnomovision version %s\n",version);

In this case you could have the program parse the actual version out of
the URL string before printing it, but again I wonder if anyone has any
better ideas.
