I hate to bike-shed this even further, but I'd like to make those
"incompatibility" messages just go away by making 8.4's psql (and all
those going forward) support every living version of Postgres at the
time of their release, so 8.4's psql would be able to talk seamlessly
to Postgres 7.4 :)

Cheers,
David (well, not really bike-shedding, but trying to propose a feature
that reduces the amount of UI clutter)
