Surely this is a really good bug fix and should be in 7.5?

I have noticed that the latex format in psql has some bugs:

? "_" is not escaped, and causes TeX to abort, thinking it's a
 subscript outside of maths mode.  Most of my table and field names
 use underscores, so this is a really nasty one.
? The column count is calculated using the contents of opt_align.  But
 opt_align has one extra element, and so it's always one too many.  I
 changed it to count the column headings, like all the other output
 formats.  There may be a bug in computing opt_align that this patch
 does not address, but I'm not yet familiar enough with the psql
 source to fix this as well.
? The line drawing rules for each border setting (0-3) and expanded
 mode didn't always match the documented behaviour and what other
 formats (e.g. aligned) did.  I made it as conformant as possible,
 and also tidied the alignment of the first line of the footer, which
 was incorrectly indented.

I've attached some example output with this patch applied.

Roger
