No, you are right.

I see two possible solutions:

  1.  Make "version_support" dependent on the existence of
      a product that knows how to enable it.

      The "Version" product could use monkey patching to enable
      version support.

  2.  Use the newly opened connection to check that
      "version" refers to a version object.

2. is much safer but makes version requests slightly more expensive.
However, this should not be a real problem.
