Looks like all current variants of postgresql-client provide the same
shlib ABI version:  --- which means under your scheme we'd
end up with postgresql92-server loading from
postgresql94-client.  That should work if the postgres devs have been
managing their ABIs carefully, but it does seem like a potential trouble

Apart from that, yes!  Can we have this yesterday please?
