That's one way, but I think setuptools has some API to determine the 
installed version of an egg. I think we should try to avoid maintaining 
a version number in both setup.py and grok/__init__.py.

If you're just looking for a quick way to determine the installed 
version yourself (e.g. for a tutorial), I suggest this:

   >>> import grok
   >>> grok
   <module 'grok' from '.../grok-0.13-py2.4.egg/grok/__init__.pyc'>
