I think the second half of this is correct. There would be no need to support
the old protocol in client interface drivers since the only supported
databases would all support the new protocol.
Whether there's any need to support the old protocol in the server depends on
whether there are any clients out there which use it which is harder to
determine and not affected by whether Postgres 7.3 is still around.
Ask me about EnterpriseDB's On-Demand Production Tuning
