Would it be possible to include some version control info inside 
cookbook items such as phpmerge.php?

When I saw this thread, I wanted to ensure that I had an up to date 
version of phpmerge.php on my Windoze server. What I ended up doing 
was downloading a new copy, generating MD5 checksums for both copies, 
and comparing the checksums (they agreed).

If the MD5 checksum was posted on the download page, that would 
simplify matters.

Or if a comment line inside the script said something like:
## Version: 2006-03-05c

I could just compare in a text editor.

Shame on me if such items exist and I didn't see them ...
