...returns substantially different XML b/w ELS and non-ELS IIRC. An EX3300:

<rpc-reply xmlns:junos="http://xml.juniper.net/junos/12.3R12/junos">

...versus EX4300 w/ ELS:

<rpc-reply xmlns:junos="http://xml.juniper.net/junos/13.2X51/junos">

That's how our off-box Junoscript code decides between ELS and not. 
Should be easy enough from an op/commit script.
