Yes, I can think of different ways to insert version numbers into these
files programmatically, but I think my time is better spent writing. If
Allen can't help us then we'll just go back to a plain set of files.

I can't think of any work-around off the top of my head other than
going in and edit (escape) any variable that is to be left untouched.

A real work-around would achieve to substitute only certain variables
(specifically $LocalConfig{Version}) while leaving others untouched.
Less flexible but probably still acceptable would be a solution that
has variables substituted in one part (the $LocalConfig{Version} would
be there obviously), but not in another. I guess that's not too
difficult to do, but kind of starts looking overengineered.

So, if none of these options appeal to you, we'll have to reverse that
