[ looks closer... ] OK, they're not actually broken, but I question
whether they're improvements. The existing coding is clear enough
that the result of psql_scan_slash_option will be freed. What you're
doing is conflating that requirement with some other processing.

I don't think that's an improvement at all. My point was that I
didn't think gset_prefix would ever be set at entry to this code,
because the setting should never survive for more than one backslash
command execution cycle.
If you want to add probably-useless code to free it, go ahead, but
this isn't a clearer way to do that than your previous version.
