But it is a "sect1" in libpq.  It should be a "sect1" somewhere that
makes more sense.

Right now it appears here:
	
	Table of Contents
	1. libpq - C Library
	
	    1.1. Introduction
	    1.2. Database Connection Functions
	    1.3. Command Execution Functions
	    1.4. Asynchronous Query Processing
	    1.5. The Fast-Path Interface
	    1.6. Asynchronous Notification
	    1.7. Functions Associated with the COPY Command
	    1.8. libpq Tracing Functions
	    1.9. libpq Control Functions
	    1.10. Environment Variables
	
	          ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
	    1.11. Files
	    1.12. Threading Behavior
	    1.13. Building Libpq Programs
	    1.14. Example Programs

It doesn't belong in libpq, and it doesn't belong in the Programmer's
Guide.
