of course this is what i already do (except that I also have to parse 
the actual version tag from the string). But as you can see, its a bit 
of a mess. I was simply asking for an easy shell mechanmism for 
accomplishing this, along the lines of what guile, clisp, gcc, emacs, 
xemacs, bash, tsch... offer.
