Just an idle thought, but each connection to the DB could add a fixed 
amount to some queueing parameter. The amount added to be set per backend, 
and the client could use a SET variable to adjust the standard amount for 
it's own backend. When the client dies/disconnects, the queueing parameter 
(whatever it is) would be reduced appropriately.
