So, as promised, here is my take to port my previous work on PostgreSQL
source tree.

Make check pass with no errors. The new class probably deserve some own TAP

Note that I added a PostgresVersion class for easier and cleaner version
comparisons. This could be an interesting take away no matter what.

I still have some more ideas to cleanup, revamp and extend the base class, but
I prefer to go incremental to keep things review-ability.
