Why only older?  It's even less likely to work if the server is newer.

(I don't agree with the premise to begin with...)

An example of where this sort of 'obvious warning' is in an environment like ours, where we have several different version of PostgreSQL running, and *try* to make sure each version of psql is available to our clients, but a client inadvertantly runs the wrong version against their database ... its only psql that has the "helper commands", like \d, so the only thing that *really* makes a different between versions ...
