Ok, I took that out.

No, pq_putmessage_noblock doesn't call send() because it enlarges the
buffer to make sure the message fits, and it doesn't anything else that
could fail else. I changed its return type to void, and added an
Assert() to check that the pq_putmessage() call it does internally
indeed doesn't fail.

I made it COMMERROR. ERRORs are sent to the client, and you could get
into infinite recursion if sending the ERROR requires setting the
blocking mode again.
Committed with those changes. I also reworded the docs a bit.
