Hi there,

You seem to be doing very much thought in this area ;-)
One idea strikes me though:
	A standard ODBC Call Level Interface exists !
Why not try to get the ideas for libpq from there ? Maybe we could even
implement those 
same functions.
A small extract:
	SQLPrepare
	SQLExecute
	SQLFetch
	SQLFreeStmt

On the discussion of the protocol, I would suggest using and looking into
	pvm3 at ftp://netlib2.cs.utk.edu/pvm3
this would open a wide area of low and high speed client server protocols
like: ipcshm, unix domain sockets, and native access to high performace
interconnects.

I use it to communicate from backend user defined functions with a neural
network 
simulator. It simplifies the communication substantially.
