How do people with multiple PostgreSQL installations keep track of
which installation they're using?  I use shell scripts that set
PATH and a few other environment variables and then exec the command
I want to run (shell aliases would also work).  For example, I'd
type "pg73 psql" to run the 7.3 version of psql (which would connect
to a 7.3 server) and I'd type "pg82 gmake" to build an extension
for 8.2devel.  Prefixing each command with pgXX is a minor nuisance
but by being explicit I always know what version I'm using.

What are others doing?
