The Tramp version number is defined in configure.ac, the only place. It
is used in the configure script (in order to check for a proper Emacs
version and print a proper error message when it fails) and in the
generated files trampver.el and trampver.texi.

It is already in the "Version:" line of trampver.el. Any chance for
package.el to get it from there?

The point is that I want to keep it as product on savannah. There should
be only one single place keeping the version number (configure.ac), and
tramp.el shall not be generated.
