I'm much more comfortable to write the following C program than to parse
patchlevel.h in VB.  What would the advantage of VB be?

#include <stdio.h>
#include "patchlevel.h"

int main(int argc, char **argv)
    printf("#define FIELD3 %d\n",
    /* some more fields needed */
    return 0;

Hm, for 2.4, maybe.

Or should there 7.1 compiled .msi installers in parallel for the 2.3 line?
