Is there a way to run a script that creates a new version of an enterprise geodatabase when a user starts an ArcMap session? And for that matter, can I add something that will reconcile and post any edits made to the 'child' version and the parent version upon closing the session?

I will say No... just to get the conversation going

Haven't found anything yet to dispute your answer Dan.  Working through a solution to reconcile, post, compress etc. I'd like to simply delete the versions after the reconcile and post, which can be done as one of the parameters ( Reconcile Versions—Help | ArcGIS Desktop , with_delete).  After all that re-create the version & set permissions; shouldn't be too tough.  I was just looking to see if I could get the user to create the version to establish ownership, but having the administive user create it and set it to public access will work.
