This started throwing a warning when running tests:

Knex:warning - knex.__knex__ is deprecated, you can get the module versionby running require('knex/package').version

Can you look into it?

feat(constructor): detect knex on construction

knex returns one of many dialect objects, of which there is no common base class/proto. therefore, a direct type check on the passed knex obj isn't an option. however, all dialects use the same client, which is a robust and easy assertion.
