Heh. "guarantee"? We only check four things and it's possible to change
the system in all sorts of subtle ways (--integer-datetimes) that won't
be picked up. Ofcourse, for 99% of modules this is not a problem but
I'm not sure if the word "guarantee" is appropriate.

Maybe just "checked for compatibility", or "determine" or "ascertain".
OK, new text in new paragraph:

Every PostgreSQL-supported library has a <quote>magic
block</> that is checked to guarantee compatibility.
For this reason, non-PostgreSQL libraries cannot be
loaded in this way.
