Looks like all current variants of postgresql-client provide the same
shlib ABI version: libpq.so.5 --- which means under your scheme we'd
end up with postgresql92-server loading libpq.so 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?
