For some reason this is the only mail in this thread I have, so I don't
actually know the patch.

I think it can be simpler though, is it possible to copy the toplevel
version file into bindings/python-cffi/version in the part of the build
that would otherwise do the sed magic?  Then only needs to look
for the version file in the same directory as itself instead of finding
the toplevel of the repo.
