No. The whole idea of trampver.el is to keep the version string away
from tramp.el. If the version string would be generated into
tramp.el, the development must be applied in tramp.el.in. Not applicable.

Some days ago, I've patched finder.el to support this. Since then, Tramp
is visible as built-in package. Would be great, if ELPA could support
this as well, if the approach with an own <foo>-pkg.el does not work.
However, I believe the approach with <foo>-pkg.el is superior.

Best regards, Michael.
