OK, should we add a mention in the 8.2.6 release notes or put it in the

Note about pgcrypto - the functions were made STRICT in 8.1
and the NULL check was removed in 8.2 from C code. If some
database still contains non-STRICT signatures from 8.0 and below,
the functions will crash on NULL. To fix it the pgcrypto.sql
needs to be run that will re-create the signatures.

Hm. Is there way to say that better?
OK, first question. How would someone have the 8.0 signatures in 8.2?
Don't they reinstall pgcrypto for every major release?
