I was using that method for my Secret Passage TC-RTC entry, which is filed under
POV-Ray/v3.7, and my .pov file has #version 3.7; at the top.
Also, the image metadata for the final render says "Created By POV-Ray 3.7.0",
so I'm confident that it works with 3.7.
There could be some changes in 3.8, but I would imagine that the overall
workflow ought to be the same.
