For packages which already have some "version" string somewhere, why
cannot we teach package.el to look for them, when it doesn't find the
"Version:" header?  I think this should be easy to implement (we could
ask the package maintainers to add something or use some standard
format, if what we already have is not enough), and should leave
everyone happy.  Right?
