get_psql_cmd is generally used inside $( ), which limits the scope of
the +x.  Code which wraps get_psql_cmd might do some things after
calling it, but not very much.

That would improve things if anyone is likely to redirect
get_psql_cmd into a file, but that seems unlikely.  I'll do that if
you want, though.
