Yeah, I wouldn't have suggested it if it made the wording particularly 
difficult in the process.  I don't know what your issue with the COPY 
one is:

"The following syntax was used before PostgreSQL version 7.3 and is 
still supported"

I can't parse that as anything other than "<7.3"; now sure how can 
someone read that to be "<="?

In any case, the two examples you gave are certainly good for showing 
the standard practices used here.  Specific version numbers are strewn 
all about, and if there's commits mentioning 8.5 already in there one  
more won't hurt.
