I think it would be even more useful if we had this defined for each API
that we provide, as that is what you're really (probably) most
interested in.  We could add for example:

void raw_version(int *major, int *minor, int *revision);


void netconn_version(int *major, int *minor, int *revision);

The major, minor and revision fields would be filled in on return.  

If you really do just want a single version for the whole blob, that
would be possible, but I'd be curious to know more about why.
