I think there won't be an easy way of back porting, as AFAIK the
exception mechanism does not exist back then (as it internally uses
savepoints / nested transactions which were introduced in 8.0, I think.)
My suggestion is to keep the existing geometry_column functions, and add
this method under a different name for PostgreSQL 8.X only.
