I'm in favor of it also, perhaps as a libpq function call which is used in
psql. That way, other apps or frontends can choose to use it or not.

Would much prefer leaving it out as a _mandatory_ part of connection
initialization, since there will be side-effects for embedded apps. Combined
with PGDATESTYLE and PGTZ there will be pretty good control over the frontend
environment.
