@brokenintuition My issue with including things like version (and worse, date and time) is that it leads to files showing up as modified to version control. Since it's easier to get a reproducible build if you can check in the generated files, I generally wouldn't want such changeable info in generated files.
@brokenintuition Oh, and regarding editing generated files: I usually solve that by integrating the generator into the build process, so any changes made get insta-overwritten whenever they build the app. That usually gives anyone ignoring the comment/docs and editing nonetheless painfully of the "proper way" to do things.
