I think so, within reason. Certainly going back to 7.4 is worthy, and
probably 7.3 as well. Going back to 7.2 is probably not: in addition
to major changes due to schemas appearing, it is a pretty old version
at this point. People have certainly expressed interest in the past
as far making psql backwards-compatible, and I think the code can be
kept fairly clean.
 
At least we are guaranteed to compile against current libraries - apps
outside the source tree never get that luxury and have worse
compatibility problems. :)
