In Why, it depends which version you are using for VC generation. The 
page summarizes which version of Why (2 or 3) is 
used in Frama-C by default, and if the other version is available on option.

With Why2, you can pass the option --fast-wp to use a worst-case 
quadratic, linear in practice, weakest precondition similar to the one 
by Leino.

With Why3, you do not have this option right now, but Jean-Christophe 
Filli?tre has started implementing it, and Johannes Kanig and I have 
agreed to contribute to this implementation. So coming in a few months.
