I don't think there's any need for us to add that to Postgres.  You
should be able to set it up right now using ssh (if you don't have ssh,
see http://www.cs.hut.fi/ssh).  Free bonus: ssh can apply data
compression to the link as well.

I've never actually used ssh to forward non-telnet TCP connections,
so I'm not sure exactly what you have to type to set it up.  If you
work out the details, would you make a little writeup to be added to
the Postgres documentation?  That would save time for other people
in the future.
