Well, plan B would be to invent a replacement function that does have
the ability to return an error message, but that seems like a lot of
work for a problem that's so marginal that it wasn't noticed till now.
(It's not so much creating the function that worries me, it's fixing
clients to use it.)

Plan C would be to redefine bogus value of PGSERVICE as not an error,
