I expect that ecpg supports cursors that include functionality
for constructs like:

  UPDATE EMPLOYEES
  SET MARRIED = 'T'
  WHERE CURRENT OF CURSOR_NAME;

but this support seems to be absent in libpq.

Is this being planned for a future release?  If so, which
one?

This is well supported feature by commercial databases (Oracle,
Sybase, Informix to name a few), but I just don't see any hint
of it coming to libpq.

TIA, Warren.
