[openstack-dev] [Neutron] Getting project version from API

There are cases where it would be useful to know the version of Neutron (or
any other project) from API, like during upgrades or in cross-project
communication cases.
For example in https://review.openstack.org/#/c/246910/ Nova needs to know
if Neutron sends vif-plugged event during live migration. To ensure this it
should be enough to know Neutron is "Newton" or higher.

Not sure why it wasn't done before (or was it and I'm just blind?) so the
question to the community is what are possible issues/downsides of exposing
code version through the API?
