Yes - I am not concerned with the socket version of the driver - in
fact, I was going to talk to Anoop about removing the old code because
we've had at least a couple of cases of people patching the wrong part,
or mistakenly using the socket code.

Either way, we're certainly not going to release the non-libpq version
any more.

Yes, I was too tired to try to fix the patch to remove the CRLF changes
:-( Still, they need to be fixed anyway.

BTW, your version misses the changes to installer/psqlodbcm.wxs...
