Well, see the JDBC example: there is no newer driver with the desired
feature for applications to link against.  Even if all client-side code
with such knowledge stays perfectly in sync as far as upstream sources
are concerned, there are any number of reasons why particular
installations might have copies of varying vintages.  It's not really
a situation that I want to get into more than necessary.
