Is there currently a page with a list of changes to be included in the
next protocol revision? I could've sworn there was one around, but cant'

Should put capability flags on the list too. So many difficult decisions
about defaults (like the bytea format issue) would be simplified by
having clients send a capability flag set. "Yup, I know about 'hex'
