Not to sound scheptical, but since when did postgresql care about
backwards compatiblity? Upgrading is already demanding a lot of
knowledge from the user (including needing such information, which
almost no other package do), this is just a minor change (the files
are mostly used by bundled tools - any exceptions?)

I intend to, for the RPMs we ship.
