Easy way to report ParaView version from python
This issue was created automatically from an original Mantis Issue. Further discussion may take place here.
Users often run into issues with running scripts since they end up importing old versions of paraview (since it's in their path etc.) in their scripts. It would be great if we have have function that they can call that prints relevant information such as ParaView version, nightly stamp etc.
This must even be accessible through the GUI -- say the About dialog.
