Let's be practical here. We're going to have support for both in libpq
for at least one version anyway. What do we gain by removing that
support in a later release? I think we should just keep it around until
we have a pressing reason to remove it, say if it gets in the way of
implementing some new feature.

In the server, I think we could remove it sooner. But even there, is
there a reason why we should?
