The version symbol is not in any released rpm version yet so no problem 
changing it to __version__ and adding __version_info__ too, I just wasn't 
aware of such a standard. But ok, googling for __version__ does indeed 
suggest it's at least a defacto-standard even if not written down 
anywhere. Consider it done.
