In 7.3 you could look at the pg_locks system view, but I can't think
of any reasonable way to do it in 7.2 :-(

The lock structures are arcane enough that manual examination with gdb
would take many minutes --- which you'd have to do with the LockMgr lock
held to keep them from changing underneath you. This seems quite
unworkable for a production database ...
It's conceivable that some version of the pg_locks code could be
back-ported to 7.2 --- you'd have to settle for dumping the info to
the log, probably, due to lack of table-function support, but it
could be done.
