For most things probably not that possible. For things like:

Simple feature enhancements (preloading of libs)
Fixing pl/Language bugs (and making sure they still work on 7.3)
Buffer overflow fixes
Security problems (the fact that alter user/createuser with encrypted 
password ' will go into a .psqlhistory file is horrendous)
pg_dump/pg_restore enhancements

Would entirely be possible.
