TIFFGetVersion() returns a multiline string which pays homage to Sam 
Leffler and SGI.  The fact that libtiff has been under new maintenance 
for a very long time should be reflected in the copyrights and the 
license.  Sam Leffler and SGI can not be held responsible for the 
changes since libtiff left their hands.

It would be useful to have a way to obtain just the version string 
("3.7.4").
