 attachment:27703.2.diff adds an optional flag to `$wpdb->db_version()` to
 return the full version string.

 In a brief search of the WP.org plugin repo, I couldn't find any plugins
 doing things with the version number other than `echo`-ing it, or
 `version_compare()`-ing it.

 That said, I have no problem with providing a standard method for getting
 extra information about the server.
