I think that it's unrealistic.
Please tell me a maintainer who update the version string every time
he applies a single patch.

I think that you can put some magic to Makefile.
For example, Makefile detects if it's a git repository, you can put
the object name to TGT_VERSION:
fujita at viola:/tmp/tgt$ git-show-ref --heads --abbrev
So TGT_VERSION could be something like 0.9.2-5a21a44 if you compile
the git tree. As long as things are done automatically, it's fine by
I guess that Debian's kernel build tool does similar things.

- I don't think that we consider users who fetch code from the git and
compile it, to be a casual user.
- You can use the abbreviation of the object name (as I did above).
