This worries me, I don't want a small change in number format to  
break backwards compatibility on our clients...

If we go to:


Are we busted?  We are going to retain the USE_* strings, but make  
them dynamically tested on actual library presence, so they will not  
get inaccurate over time. That leaves the fluffing of the number as  
the only change to postgis_version().  Does that still break things?
