Dear David Fetter.

Version 7.2 is doesn't know schema.
Version 7.3 uses schema syntax in its internal queries.
Therefore the thing which can handle schema is necessary in more than 7.3.

But, it can talk with both with pgAdminII.
It is wonderful.

If it is wished to psql itself.
[pgsql-hackers] is good when it wants to clear these more.
