But is it OK to add a function to the library without bumping the 
version? AFAICS all you have reverted is the version bump, so we could 
have two versions of the library with the same version number, one with 
the new function and one without - that seems somewhat undesirable.

Also, regardless of the safety or otherwise, isn't it our standard 
practice not to change anything in stable releases except for bug fixes? 
That's part of what makes Postgres so stable, in fact.
