#20953 new enhancement

Isolate references to versioning

Currently, we have versioning references in hard-coded strings in a couple places around the codebase. For example, in protover.c and dirserv.c

It would be useful to isolate these references to a single location, so that in the future, when we need to update/change versions, it is obvious all the places that we might need to do it, and what duplication already exists.

This will hopefully help prevent bugs such as #20810 in the future.

Finally admitting that 0.3.??? was a euphemism for Tor: unspecified all along.
