Sounds good. Tramp is suffering from the same problem. It's version is
`tramp-version' in file trampver.el. This file is generated by the
autoconf/configure mechanism, when I release a new Tramp version.

Nothing, which belongs to a "Version:" header in tramp.el. This is one
of the problems, which hinders me to bring Tramp into GNU ELPA.

As compromise, I generate already a "Version:" header in trampver.el,
but this is not understood by package.el (yet).

Best regards, Michael.
