Sure, it's a great idea!

However I think we shouldn't pass the Gdal version as parameter to the doAbout dialog.
About dialog can retrieve it using the GdalTools_utils module, so we maintain the same interface for all tools.

In the attached patch there is also a cleanup converting GDAL version in string. If we want to use strings, we must use these everywhere in the Version class, otherwise the comparison may fail. e.g. ('2', 0) is not equal to ('2', '0')
