Ethan commented on WTR-458:

I think that programatically checking the version can be useful, in general (not specifically to watir, but certainly applies). I've worked around bugs in certain versions of libraries by checking version, for example. It's possible to get the installed version via rubygems, but not really trivial. I think having a version constant is useful.
