This just doesn't make any sense. This way npgsql setting that flag can't be 
released before a new set of backbranch releases are in widespread use. 
Otherwise it'll just error out in all those, not just in 9.5 as it's now the 
case. It breaks compatibility with all unsupported versions of postgres because 
those will never learn to ignore this driver argument. Without any need. 

Ffs all were talking about is continuing to accept a guc in 9.5+, which had 
been accepted for 10+years. 

Please excuse brevity and formatting - I am writing this on my mobile phone.
