Removing this would accomplish nothing useful. The version number is in 
various other places (e.g. readme.html), and can be deduced by probing 
for the presence of other files which change between one version and 
another (e.g. versions of jQuery, other included components), or can be 
guessed from examining the datestamps on many unchanging files. Anyone 
telling you that hiding the Generator meta tag improves security is 
selling snake oil.
