add dh-elpa-Version: binary package field
There is a debhelper mechanism for dh_* tools to embed their versions in generated maintscripts, but our emacsen-common maintscripts are not true maintscripts, so we can't use that mechanism. Using a binary package field makes it possible for us to find packages that need rebuilding without looking inside the contents of any binary packages.
