I like your patch a lot. It could solve a nasty little problem that always 
tends to be forgotten.  :-)

Unfortunately, our compile farm which feeds the package repository extracts 
the SOURCE_VERSION from batman.h to generate the package name. Unless we 
rewrite the compile scripts to extract both defines we can't apply your patch 
as-is. This rewrite is not as painless as it could be. Certainly, at some 
point we want to touch the scripts to optimize the speed but that wasn't on 
our agenda right now. 

Do you see alternatives which allow us to reuse the existing compile farm and 
have the functionality you implemented ?

Regards,
Marek
