I'm becoming more convinced by the day that g.column.pg should have
the use of VARHDRSZ replaced by the literal constant 4, thereby
eliminating the dependency upon postgres[_fe].h (which are internal
headers; you shouldn't need to use them unless you're writing server

It's not as if the value varies by platform (it's defined as
"sizeof(int32)"), nor is it likely to change (more than 4Gb for a
single field of a single record? I don't think so). And if it did
change, there would be no guarantee that the value which was used by
the server matched the value which was compiled into the client.
