Which, curiously enough, is exactly what it does ...

I'm not particularly concerned with the user-friendliness of the error
message, since this case would never arise for normal users (the
PG_VERSION check would fire first in any cross-version compatibility
situation).  It only matters for hackers tracking CVS HEAD.
