Hello Pavel,

  \echo :VERSION
  PostgreSQL 10devel on x86_64-pc-linux-gnu, compiled by gcc (Ubuntu
5.4.0-6ubuntu1~16.04.4) 5.4.0 20160609, 64-bit

Probably some :VERSION_NUM would make some sense. See attached PoC patch.
Would it make sense?

Maybe better name for you CLIENT_VERSION_NUM

If it was starting from nothing I would tend to agree with you, but there is already an existing :VERSION variable, so it seemed logical to keep on and create variants with the same prefix.

Can be SERVER_VERSION_NUM taken from connection info?

Probably it could. It seems a little less straightforward than defining a client-side string at compile time. The information is displayed when the connection is established, so the information is there somewhere.

 psql (10devel, server 9.6.2)
