Well, the question is still "where is the optional info going to go?"

I think what I'd find nice looking is

	$ psql test
	psql 8.4devel  [ server version warning here, if needed ]
	[ line with SSL info here, if needed ]
	Type "help" for help.

	test=> 

I do feel that the help statement ought to be on its own line;
the other way is going to look cluttered, particularly as soon
as there's a version warning in there.
