[erlang-questions] Determining HiPE availability

I'm compiling modules at runtime using smerl, and would like to
automatically use HiPE if it's available.  I needed a way to
programmatically determine if HiPE is available.  Someone pointed me at
erlang:system_info(hipe_architecture) which returns 'undefined' if HiPE is
unavailable.  However, this doesn't seem to be documented anywhere.  Should
it be?
