Well, if we allowed ON_ERROR_ROLLBACK to work in non-interactive
sessions we could just do:

        \set ON_ERROR_ROLLBACK on
        DROP TABLE foo;
        \set ON_ERROR_ROLLBACK off

No new syntax required.  Seems this variable is going to need an
'interactive' setting, which means it isn't boolean anymore.

Also, should we allow 'true/false' to work with these seetings?  We do
that with boolean columns in SQL.
