I'm not sure it changes anything, but there are other options - ones
specific to particular packages. For instance, wxPython has
wx.version. And at least a few years ago, some other major packages
(pyGTK?) also had roll-your-own approaches. I have no idea how active
any of those are (wxPython's still works, though not on the Mac, and I
don't think sees much use).
