There's not a trivially simple mechanism for doing this,
although I've been thinking about adding one.  At the moment
the best I can offer is the $Version string, which will
look like "pmwiki-2.0.beta53".

I've been thinking about introducing a $VersionNum variable
which will be guaranteed to have monotonically increasing
values, but there hasn't been much demand or need for it yet.
