Jarmo Pertman commented on WTR-458:

I still don't see much of a point having that as a constant. As Ethan pointed out then you can do it with Rubygems and it's nothing hard to do either!

Gem.loaded_specs["watir"].version.to_s # => "1.6.6"

Do we still need the constant itself?

I deleted it purposefully at the time, but can add it back if it's really-really-really needed.

Working around bugs could be also done with Rubygems with "gem 'gem', '=version'" instead of using some if-statements to read some values of some constants.
