You're confusing a command tag with a notice.  In the first place,
we shouldn't assume that applications are ready to deal with
indefinitely long command tags (the backend itself doesn't think they
can be longer than 64 bytes); in the second place, they should be
constant strings for the most part so that simple strcmp()s suffice
to see what happened.  Command tags are meant for programs to deal
with, more than humans.
