"Not very efficient"? This seems like a very weak argument. The actual
cost of running the function is no different from PQnotifies in the case
where no notify event is found; and in the case where one is found, it'd
be slower because you'd then have to call PQnotifies anyway to remove
the item from the list.
Yes, I know the function is only five lines, but there are also
documentation and other maintenance costs to consider anytime we add
something to libpq's API. I don't think you've made enough of a case
