In any case, this was more like "if we were doing this from scratch"

I think PROMPT_COMMAND mode that takes <pre> and <post> string has
been advertised throughout the pre-release freeze, which is long
enough in Git timescale to avoid backward incompatibility, so we are
already stuck with the function in two modes even if what I said in
the previous message (i.e. "why not just one mode") worked.

I am considering to fast-track the "optional third parameter" patch
to the 1.8.1 final, so that we can have the same degree of
customizability in both modes.
