Maybe we should just drop support for Postgresql 7.3 and earlier. 7.4 was
released 2003-11-17, so it's over 2 years old now. The current production
release is 8.1, although 8.0, 7.4 and 7.3 all appear to be supported by the
Postgres folks as well.
Does anyone know of a good reason to maintain support for 7.3 and earlier?
Dropping 7.3 seems like it would solve this problem with dropping columns, and
probably a few other problems as well.
