Unfortunately the regression tests don't really test the library interface.
They test that various forms of SQL work but all with a single client and a
single form of authentication.
What we want to know is that things like pgadmin can connect properly to
either 8.3, 8.2, and even 8.1 using the new libraries regardless of how the
server authentication is configured. Do they work correctly if the server
tries to do password authentication, ident, kerberos, etc.
