Since Apache and IIS are HTTP servers, you can use the HTTP Headers to
send hash data. Using the ETag is the most common, but if you like,
you can propose a new HTTP Header ("X-Widget-Hash").

Possibly the question is, when *not* using an HTTP server, what's the
best way to deliver the version hash data?
