The case I was thinking of was...
psql> run some command...
psql returns from call
user does something else; meanwhile, server forced shutdown/crash
user comes back, tries to run some query and gets automatic reconnect
In any case, Tom brought up a bunch of cases where this would be a bad
idea, so my question's answored.
