This seems like a good idea to me since it is backward compatible and
will help to diagnose future recovery problems by knowing for sure what
version of Falcon created the tablespace and the serial log. Would you
take on this task as part of your recovery investigations? Unless you
can find a reason to do it under a bug, please open a worklog to track it.
I think we are talking about using putStream to add these
#define FALCON_VERSION "T1.3-2"
#define FALCON_DATE "30 October, 2008"
in SRLSession::append() and getStream() in SRLSession::read().
Then they can be added to the end of the header page in Hdr::create()
