Yes, or you can do it via a custom com32 module.
As far as having a more convenient way to do it, I could easily see
creating a button, like Ctrl-V for the version information, to get that
information at the command line; as for integrating it into a custom
message that would take more work (and a bit of thought); I am trying to
come up with a macro framework that's reasonably clean, and it probably
should fit into it, but that's definitely post-3.50 material.
