OK. The attached patch makes \conninfo command emit the following
message if the host begins with a slash:

    $ psql -h/tmp -c"\conninfo"
    You are connected to database "postgres" via local socket on
"/tmp" at port "5432" as user "postgres".

Similarly, it makes \c command emit the following message in that
case:

    $ psql -hlocalhost -c"\c - - /tmp -"
    You are now connected to database "postgres" via local socket on "/tmp".

Comments?
