Hmm.  If we wanted to completely redesign the libpq API, and thereby
break every frontend application there is, this'd be a good idea.
I wasn't looking to do that.  I figured an incremental improvement
to libpq was what was called for.

However, there's nothing stopping someone from producing a brand new
frontend library, which applications could migrate to over time.
(Or more likely, new apps would be written to the new API while old
ones stick with what works...)

PS: Thanks for the pointer to PVM; looks interesting.
