You may wish to consider doing something like is done with GHC. Stable releases get an even version number and do not include the date, but development versions do get an odd number and include the date in their version number (options other than dates include the repository revision number but that only works if the repo has no local changes). For example,

$ ghc --version # A stable build
The Glorious Glasgow Haskell Compilation System, version 6.6.1

$ ./compiler/ghc-inplace --version # A development build
The Glorious Glasgow Haskell Compilation System, version 6.9.20071023

(I'm re-opening this so it doesn't get forgotten. Feel free to close.)

Ikarus Scheme version 0.0.1+ (revision 1091, build 2007-11-19)
