In my case, the script is in complete control over the install build.
It is cloning the source repository, updating to a tag, and then
providing iscc with both the version number (/DVERSION) and the output
filename (/F).

How about a compromise?  We can read the version from
mercurial/__version__.py if the value is not provided on the command
