[Slackbuilds-users] What if we `source`d the version number

Why do we define the VERSION for a package in two separate files?

What if we replaced this line in foo.SlackBuild:

with this instead:
. ./$PRGNAM.info

The VERSION variable would get imported from a consolidated location (the 
.info file).

It seems to make more sense to me, and it makes trivial upgrades (the ones 
where I go in and just bump a version number to something I want to build) a 
one-file task.
