Show list of installed Symphony patches

We need a way to compare two installations (environments) of Platform Symphony in terms of applied fixes.
'About' window in web interface doesn't show the list of installed
fixes, so I'm concerned that some of my servers (cluster manger and/or
compute hosts) have differenet set of applied Platform Symphony fixes.

There are two similar RFE, but one is private and another one is for 6.1.1, but we use 7.1.1

I guess it would be useful if 'About' window would show build number and release date from below commands
$SOAM_HOME/7.1.1/linux-x86_64/etc/sd -V
$SOAM_HOME/7.1.1/linux-x86_64/etc/sim -V
$SOAM_HOME/7.1.1/linux-x86_64/etc/smcproxy -V
$SOAM_HOME/7.1.1/linux-x86_64/etc/ssm -V
$EGO_TOP/3.3/linux-x86_64/etc/egosc -V
$EGO_TOP/3.3/linux-x86_64/etc/execproxy -V
$EGO_TOP/3.3/linux-x86_64/etc/lim -V
$EGO_TOP/3.3/linux-x86_64/etc/melim -V
$EGO_TOP/3.3/linux-x86_64/etc/named -v
$EGO_TOP/3.3/linux-x86_64/etc/pem -V
$EGO_TOP/3.3/linux-x86_64/etc/pim -V
$EGO_TOP/3.3/linux-x86_64/etc/rs -V
$EGO_TOP/3.3/linux-x86_64/etc/rsa -V
$EGO_TOP/3.3/linux-x86_64/etc/ussd -v
$EGO_TOP/3.3/linux-x86_64/etc/wsgserver -V
$EGO_TOP/3.3/linux-x86_64/etc/wsm -V

Another way is to have an option to add a column with component build number in 'All hosts' (list view), so versions can be compared on all cluster hosts.
