[hyades-dev] HCE component versioning (was raserver versioning)

What Kim says here is relevant to the HCE committee work that is ongoing. 
We should include a new query (or a standard, required variable) which 
holds version information. We should give agent writers guidance that this 
variable should be populated at run time based on a version number, build 
number, and/or date string that's compiled into the actual library that 
loads, rather than being populated from a configuration file.
