Yup, I got that ;-).

While these seem like good changes in the long run, I'm concerned about
breaking existing client apps wholesale.  Is it feasible to have a
backwards-compatibility mode?  I wouldn't even insist that it be the
default behavior --- but adding a one-line "set backwards-compatible
mode" kind of call seems better than major rewrites, for apps that
depend on the old behavior.

                        regards, tom lane
