Barry,

The data dictionary makes a lot of sense. I am a little concerned about
abandoning older versions of postgres. There are the current driver
works with versions as old as 6.5.3 .

Dave,


What I would really like is more of an API from the backend (a set of 
data dictionary views) that don't change (or at least change less 
frequently). So that JDBC, psql and any other client out there doesn't 
need to do a whole lot of work in this area.

I would propose that we add that support to deal with backend version 
differences when we work on support for 7.2 backend.  So what I would 
really suggest is get 7.1 working, get 7.2 working along with continued 
support for 7.1, and then if we have time go back and add 7.0 support. 
Given a 7.2 that goes beta in a few months, I think this order makes
sense.

thanks,
--Barry
