As I said, the version string is used at several places in different
files of Tramp. This must be consistent, it is essential for Tramp.

Your propasal would mean to write an own expansion mechanism, instead of
using AC_SUBST.

Too much trouble. Since there is no urgent need, I'll wait how it
evolves with the request from Thierry (do not generate <foo>-pkg.el
mandatory). I believe this would be the best, consistent solution.

Best regards, Michael.
