You can always require a certain version for a module, so long as the
module is "optional." (as in "non-core"; the double quotes
acknowledge that there is no clear definition on what should fall
into that bin and what shouldn't)
Just make sure your test exists gracefully and the module prints a
clear message about the cause of death when it dies.
