What if the feature does break compatibility with old features?
What if it is "truly" a new feature?

One example would be that we are considering reworking
pg_dump/restore a bit to support batch uploads and interactive mode.
It would not break compatibility with anything but would
greatly enhance one's ability to actually backup and restore
large volume sets.

Sincerely,

Joshua Drake
