sure -- it's my fault for starting the conversation back up.  I was
wondering about supporting older version checks, but only because I
was unaware of the 'machine' variant of the version check
(server_version_num), which properly supports numerical ordering for
historical versions.  If there's anything to do here, maybe we ought
to document that server_version_num should be used for checking
version a little more strongly.  Judging by google searching, this is
as not widely known as it should be.
