I had a few other things on my list:
* make PGconn,PGresult truly opaque to applications (per recent discussion)
* libpgtcl is missing any way to access PQerrorMessage!?
* remove writable fields in static PQconninfoOptions for thread safety
* bring libpq.sgml documentation fully up to speed
(I'm willing to do the above four, but am not promising that the doco
will get done before Sept 1. I think Thomas indicated that Sept 15
is OK for docs?)
* put UNLISTEN in standard backend, fix libpgtcl listen support to use it
I would really like to see this in 6.4, because I need UNLISTEN in my
applications. Thomas had volunteered to add the needed parser support
for UNLISTEN (the execution function already exists, it just needs a
statement that can call it). As far as I've heard he hasn't gotten to
it yet. I can fix libpgtcl but do not want to touch it unless the
underlying backend support is there.
* psql: control-c ought to stop lengthy output
* psql's \z output truncates table names at 16 chars
* psql and libpgtcl insert unexpected backslashes in output data
I was going to work on these but it's looking like they will not make
the Sept 1 cut. Anyone else want to do them?

I'd like to see this in there too, and will work on it if no one else
does, but I rather doubt I can get to it by Sept 1. Maybe this will
have to wait for 6.5, or 6.4.1, or something.
