Much of it :) But thanks for the review.

I think the copyright header on completely new code should just include
the current year, shouldn't it? I've just marked both files as
"Copyright (c) 2007 [PGDG]".

I just removed the test, as it seemed unlikely to be helpful.

Patch applied with various stylistic changes (including all of Tom's
suggestions), catversion bumped.
