How to determine a Cacti template version

Users are often bewildered when they are unable to import templates found on the forum and presented with the error, Error: XML: Hash version does not exist. Cacti prevents templates that have been exported on new versions back to older versions for compatibility. Quickly looking inside a XML template, it's not very clear how to determine what version it was created on. There IS a reason to the madness – the hash!

Take the following example: <hash_040018258d1c9487a6c58dd804f4a012007664>
The first 2 digits are the type of the template.
The next 4 digits are the Cacti version it was created on.
The next 32 digits are a random number.
