That makes sense to me. I think people are accustomed to ignoring login
headers because they are usually just copyright boilerplate. I could
see reducing the header to something like
Welcome to psql 8.3RC2, the PostgreSQL interactive terminal.
Type \? for help, \q to quit.
in the normal case. (The wrong-backend-version warning and perhaps
the SSL encryption notice would remain as possible additions.)
We really shouldn't be designing this on -patches, though.
