Not really indeed. Nevertheless, I renamed get_version to update_version
and introduced get_version that does not change the __version__.py file on
the disk, just warns if the version information is changed.

In addition, update_version has a new keyword argument

version_template = '%(major)d.%(minor)d.%(micro)d-%(release_level)s-%(serial)d',

so that one has a full control over how the version string should look
