Ok. Great. That's what I needed to hear.

Here is a patch against the same cvs tree as the SSL patch (Aug 20). 
I hope I didn't mess the SGML up too bad, but somebody should definitly
look that over. I tried to steal as much as I could from around :-)

This patch updates:
* Installation instructions (paragraph on how to compile with openssl)
* Documentation of pg_hba.conf (added "hostssl" record docs)
* Libpq documentation (added connection option, documentation of
  PQgetssl() function)
* Add section on SSL to "Server Runtime Environment"

If you beleive any particular area needs more attention, please let me know.

//Magnus
