I think Version is a to "useful" word for a variable {$Version} which  
is used only once or twice in a normal wiki installation. Rename it  
to {$PmWikiVersion}. I would even extent this to {$Name}, {$Title},  
{$Author} etc. A prefix like Page as in {$PageUrl} would free this  
very common words for custom page variables. Yes, I'm aware of the  
backward compatibility issues.
