Actually, having looked at this (and I should have spotted anyway), the
version is taken directly from git.

As the last tag of the master branch is 0.9.19, it uses that automatically.

If you want a nicer version just do "echo "0.9.22" > .tarball-version"
in the root of your clone and all will be well.

When we release 0.9.22, we will tag it and thus it will automatically
inherit this version.

Personally I prefer a manual way as I feel that as soon as a release is
made the micro version should be incremented so that git master
immediately becomes 0.n.m+1.

This could be incorporated into the script (add one to it) but that's
not wise for building off of a tag...
