Hi Kristian,

It's a common workflow to want to automatically update the egg version
in some file, because for the egg system it's required to update at
least the .release-info file, and optionally the meta-file if you're
using the file-listing method of serving an egg.

There's the "git-egg-author" egg which will automatically update the
release-info file, tags and commits.  You could then read the version
from that in your macro.

This is probably not what you're looking for, but the cp -T hack doesn't
sound very appealing.  It's not POSIX (the BSDs for example don't know
about it), and treating the target as a plain file sounds like it could
cause other problems.
