Update: I realized a quick test would take only 5 minutes, and took the time
to try it out. Having hardcoded a local version of the test framework with
logging options suitable for 8.1, I ran the tests again and found bucardo_ctl
breaking regularly because of a query with "RETURNING" in it. A different set
of problems scuttled the tests when run against PostgreSQL 8.2. Although this
isn't proof Bucardo won't work with those versions, it certainly isn't
reassuring. I'll take a look at this when I get a chance, to make sure Bucardo
runs nicely with older versions, and that it can be easily verified against
