Back-patching would be interesting for existing applications, but -1
as it is a new feature :)


I think that it rises to the level of an omission in 9.3 that now
requires correction. Many of our users couldn't run pg_controldata
even if they'd heard of it...


We seem to have +Many against -1, so back-patched it now.

I considered it a new feature, so not back-patching was the default. If
you want to back-patch it, I won't object.


That was my original feeling, too, but +1 for backpatching.

 Is there are reason this wasn't back-patched to 9.3?  I think it should
 be.

+1 for back-patching.

Cheers,
David.
