Did you not see my reply on asterisk-users? This has already been 
corrected in the release script for future tarballs.

It is only for 'tech support' usage, basically. Previously we had no way 
to know what version of Zaptel was installed; now it shows up in the 
kernel (dmesg) log, and in Asterisk when chan_zap gets loaded.

It is no way a version for API or module interface usage.
