Ordinarily "git describe" would be an easy way to come up with this,
but when I was looking at this a few weeks ago I hit a roadbump. For
1_6_1 we branched 1_6_x-stable to a separate 1_6_1 branch, and then
tagged version 1_6_1 on that branch. So it's not as simple as "git
describe" on the main 1_6_x branch. Maybe there will be another git
incantation we can use that would work in a similar way.
