A change was made because some record version are allowed to be repeated for
some reason. Also, there was an issue regarding which index is looked up in
the master table; it was inconsistent.

Deferrable is only a placeholder in the system tables. It's not implemented.
Values get checked as you post them. They could be checked at commit time by
plugging into the code that handles commit tasks, but it requires extensive
review, of course.

BTW, I can't say many things of postgres for lack of experience, but I could
fill a book with bad experiences regarding Sybase.
