I see your point.  Even with a general solution, probably best to
leave the pset there for psql, though.

I'll look those over.  Any caveats beyond what you already mentioned
of which I should be particularly careful?

I strongly encourage you to set that up on git.postgresql.org.  If
for some reason that's not practicable, I can give you write
permissions to my repository there and set up a dtester branch for
this.  I've barely scratched the surface on git in the last few
weeks, and already I'm a big fan.  I was never convinced that
subversion was an improvement over cvs -- they each had advantages
over the other which seemed a wash for me -- but git takes everything
to a whole new level.
