I do watch this list for any discussion of changes to the protocol, but 
from Tom's response I guess I should also be looking at protocol.sgml. 
 Could someone point me to the definitive version of this file so I can 
monitor changes to it?  Thanks.

BTW, I think the main reason I got bitten at 7.2 was because the 
protocol changed, but the protocol version number did not.

While I'm on the keyboard, I'd like to say how much I appreciate the 
work that Tom, Bruce et al put into making PostgreSQL the system it is. 
 Thanks for a really great job.

All the best,
    Bruce Badger
