Sam Leffler noted that his DCC log file parsing script was broken by my
changes to the DCC log files after 1.0.52.  He has suggested a version
number at the start of the file.

Which would be better, changing the DATE line to something like:

    DATE: 06/07/02 12:00:38 MDT   dccm 1.1.3 file 1.2

or adding an initial line something like:

    VERSION: dccm 1.1.3 1.2


Or are there objections to changing the start of the files?

Note that the changes would also apply to files generated by `dccproc -E`
to produce

    DATE: 06/07/02 12:00:38 MDT   dccproc 1.1.3 file 1.2

or 

    VERSION: dccproc 1.1.3 1.2
