Yes, I'm pretty sure we did. And in fact, from pgAdmin3.h:

// Supported server minimum and maximum values.
const short SERVER_MIN_VERSION_N = 0x0802;
const wxString SERVER_MIN_VERSION_T = wxT("8.2");
const short SERVER_MAX_VERSION_N = 0x0901;
const wxString SERVER_MAX_VERSION_T = wxT("9.1");

Right.

I think what Guillaume is suggesting though is not that we keep saying
7.3 is supported, but that we don't remove code that's there to
support older versions than we don't currently support. On the other
hand, I'm saying we're not actively doing that, but if someone wants
to do so, or if we want to simplify things when working on a
particular piece of code, then removing the support for older versions
is acceptable.
