I fall into this camp with a few machines still running standard RHEL
4 which I believe has DBD::Pg 1.32 installed. We do keep up to date
with PostgreSQL but the machines connecting to it include everything
from brand new web servers through to ancient machines in accounting
As much as I would like GUCs to disappear I think this one should
proceed cautiously and probably be a 9.1 or even 9.2 item.
