the patch is a diff between two files, so you have to maintain them
both, anyway.

we might make a small jar with only the different stuff, then append
this jar to the CLASSPATH, after the original pgjdbc.
btw, the original pgjdbc version should be automatically detected, as
the latest pgjdbc##.jar in /usr/share/java.
