#1608: Sort out scripts versions

 Since we now have 3 scripts to deal with (core, topology, raster) I think
 it would make sense to handle syncing in a more robust way.

 The current situation is we have a single library version (core) and a
 single scripts version (core). No version is embedded in raster library
 nor in raster or topology scripts.

 It seems to me that a simple approach to the problem would be to have all
 objects share the same version, no matter what changes and what not. After
 all the idea is that you're always able to do minor upgrades between
 versions so you should always do that, no matter whether or not the
 scripts actually changed.

 I should add that the current script version thing fails to detect if the
 scripts really changed as it misses included files.
