As others pointed out (and you obviously noticed yourself), Browse isn't
really a good place for this to live. In general we recommend activities
to check for certain features [1] in order to run on different versions
of Sugar, but we can't pack much information into the User-Agent header,
so for this particular use case a way to figure out the Sugar Platform
version [2] would be useful.
