That's generally my way to go lately:  Check if the newer constant has  
been defined, and if not, define it, then use it normally.  That way  
your plugin works just fine even in WP versions before the constant  

To Viper -- I wasn't trying to criticize wPhone.  The WP app  
notwithstanding, I still love this plugin, and I hope it continues to  
be developed -- at least for base compatibility purposes.
