Here's a function returning postgres db version. I'm not sure if it fits
in updates.inc, maybe it should be somewhere else.

Postgres, since 6.4, has version() function so you can check db version
from SQL. This can be used in updates.inc for example for conditional
dropping of the column (which is available since 7.3, not 7.4 as stated
in updates.inc).
I need to check how the version string is returned in different
versions before making changes.
