It's nice, but currently there are a lot of ways in which psql is broken
regarding older server versions.  We should be caring about all of them
(ideal), or about none (the current situation).

There have been proposals in the past about making that happen.  You
could investigate that (please do -- I'd love to have a cross-version
psql, in the same way we have a cross-version compatible pg_dump).  The
way of your patch is certain to lead into a mantainance nightmare :-(

<crab> why does it need to be complicated?
<Schwern> Because it's MakeMaker.
