    [ng] maint: downgrade version: 2.0a -> 0.5a
    Since Automake is still in the version series 1.x (at the moment of
    writing the last stable version being 1.11.3), labelling Automake-NG
    with a version of "2.0a" (as we've done in a recent commit) would
    mud the waters about what the "real" or "more recent" Automake is,
    and cause even more confusion about the Automake vs. Automake-NG
    distinction.  Which is precisely what we don't want.
    So let's downgrade the Automake-NG version to "0.5a".
    This change comes with a caveat of its own, though.
    After this "version downgrade", a project which requires a minimal
    Automake API version in AM_INIT_AUTOMAKE or AUTOMAKE_OPTIONS might
    get a "spurious" warning if someone tries to use Automake-NG to
    bootstrap it.  For example, a project whose contains:
    would trigger a complaint from Automake-NG, since "1.10" is
    interpreted as a version number greater than "0.5a".
    Then again, while this is annoying right now, in the long run it
    might turn out to actually be helpful, in case we introduce some
    big or subtle backward-incompatibility between Automake-NG and
    mainstream Automake.
    Suggestion by Dave Hart.
    * (AC_INIT): Change version number from 2.0a to 0.5a.
