Currently there's no version number for ESC that the end user can see.
We need one of these two solutions:
(1) make an about box for ESC where it prints out the ESC version number , with
nice redhat Logos.
(2) or do it from command line, esc -V , will print out the version number.
Also, we need to talk to Sean Cotter to find out what version number to put

move to 7.2, if you get to it, re-target it

My request is to have both UI and command line output.
That can be done, I will figure it out.
Examples from other XUL apps on Linux:
$ /local/firefox/firefox --version
Mozilla Firefox 2.0b2, Copyright (c) 1998 - 2006 mozilla.org
$ /local/thunderbird/thunderbird --version
Thunderbird 2.0a1, Copyright (c) 2005-2006 mozilla.org
per bug council on 09/26, out of 72
per bug council on 11/17, these bugs are not targeted for RHEL 5.0 Smart card
login work. These bugs will now be targeted for RHEL 5.1.
per the last bug meeting, we decided this would be targeted in the rhel 5.1
This bug was proposed for RHEL 5, but wasn't resolved in time.
devel_ack+ for RHEL 5.1.
Locally have it working to where the user can say while in:
It will print out the version on the command line.
Now the feature works by simply typing:
At the terminal in any directory.
Fixed in esc-1.0.0-21.el5 .
Verified on x86_64. I see an additional (null) printed out. Filing a separate
bug to get that removed/replaced.
