[Chicago-talk] Perl and CVS

With CVS (as far as I know) you put an $Id: line at the top of the script
which gets filled in with person who checked it in, version, date when the code is 
commited.  So in perl put,

#$Id: $ 

at the top of your code.

I don't know about having it replace the $VERSION, unless you parsed the CVS Id line
in a BEGIN block.
