I think using sessionInfo() instead of version is a good idea.

Another thing not currently reported by sessionInfo() is a list of
loaded name spaces.  As more packages use name spaces and importing
dependencies instead of attaching them, this will become useful debug

Loaded name spaces can be listed using loadedNamespaces().
