The problem I'm seeing with this is that currently it resolves
%v (client) = 8.5devel%V (server) = 8.5.0
Besides being inconsistent, it's also pretty misleading. I'd imagine a significant use of this feature would be to know that one is connected to, say, a beta version.
More generally, does anyone actually need this feature? psql complains loudly enough if the version numbers are not the right ones. I don't know why this would need to be repeated in the prompt.
