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 info.

Loaded name spaces can be listed using loadedNamespaces().
