We could arrange a tiny executable which produces a version number from
the one in version.hpp and use it with backquotes in the command-line.
Alternatively (simpler), we could arrange for version.hpp to be
auto-generated based on a number in a .jam file. Not a high priority but
it would be good to avoid multiple copies of this number.

Maybe, but I'm not a domain expert.
