1. Run "new" versions of the database on a different port - only the new
client will know to look there.
2. Write a small proxy to simulate #1 (in case PG is serving other clients) -
only allow access to the StORE db from localhost
3. Write a small proxy to determine which version of the protocol is in use,
and allow/deny access as required.
