there are some things it doesn't have yet
- proper error handling (the sqlstate return codes are not yet done as far as I can tell)
- disconnect detection using the SQL_ATTR_CONNECTION_DEAD is broken in the libpq version

I don't have confidence that it's as stable as the old driver, since I have found the previous version to be extremely stable over years of use on a large install base, and until I get past at least one of these issues I won't be able to evaluate this version in production.  Once I get past these issues I'm pretty sure I'll find some more.

I really do appreciate all the work that has gone into this and I am impressed how quickly it got to this state, I think it's almost there.

I think it's fairly safe to say that the new libpq version of psqlODBC
is more stable than the previous release versions of the driver, and
also now offers more features such as SSL, Kerberos authentication (has
anyone tried this yet?), pgpass files and so on.

In light of this, I think the libpq version should now take over as the
official driver, and lose the 'libpq' suffix that was added for testing.

If anyone has any strong objections, please shriek soon!!

Regards, Dave.
