Hangon, what would the definition of
org.postgresql.jdbc2.Connection be in the new situation with
jdbc3 classes inheriting from jdbc2 classes? 

It would still be:

   package org.postgresql.jdbc2; 
   public class Connection extends org.postgresql.Connection
   implements java.sql.Connection


And that class won't compile with JDK 1.4 since it lacks new
methods like setHoldability() of the java.sql.Connection
interface. This raises a compile time error "class should be
declared abstract...".

And if we change the definition of this class to not implement
java.sql.Connection, then the same code won't produce a proper
implementation of JDBC2 with a JDK <= 1.3.

I think there's a conceptual flaw in this scheme. Version 3 of
the JDBC interfaces don't extend the version 2 interfaces, so I
don't think we can solve it by letting jdbc3 classes extend
jdbc2 classes.
