Yes and that's true in both ways: git-log+grep or hooks approach. We need a 
way to prevent the increment if it is automatically computed.

A text file containing versions and a local procedure to detect if a macro 
must be incremented could solve the problem maybe. 

I'm not sure if gnulib and automake people manually increments their serials. 
I need to check that ...
