Yes, scheme --version works, although you'll have to parse the output a bit.

When I added the support to version 9.1 I started from
swank-mit-scheme.scm, but there were some issues with it and it didn't
work very well, so I ended rewriting most of it.

It might be that the version in 9.1, in "src/runtime/swank.scm" is a
better fit, even for older versions.  But I haven't tried it.
