I'm thinking of a tool, callable within *any* build process, for verifying that the version conforms to the "RationalVersion" scheme, for example.  

Especially, I'm interested in a tool that would automatically increment version numbers for e.g. in process development versions where each build needs a new version number (maybe in several places e.g. setup.py, documentation, history file, etc.).
