I like the idea for the Gap character?

I am not sure I would want to have to put the program version numbers in
there as that really should be delegated to the parser module I would
think, but the idea about defining some constants would make sense.
Being able to to say $memparser->can_parser('3.0.5') seems clearer to me
as anytime we need more 1 copy of information it gets out of sync (we can
barely get people to keep the dependancies listed in the Makefile.PL and
the INSTALL document up to date when they are added to a module).
