This is probably a better test than a version check as it'll handle
patched backports happily whereas a version check would not.

Seems perfectly reasonable and not silly to me.

I'm not sure this is sufficient as it could lead to calls to undefined
functions if compiled against an older version.

Anyway, let's take this away from upstream lists for now, and we can get
it polished and give it to Daniel when it's ready. My main intention
with the mail was to let people know there is WIP and double check where
to submit it and against what version control system etc. so the ins and
outs of getting it ready probably aren't that interesting to most people
on the list :)
