Cool.  The existing libpgtcl is certainly lacking in those areas
(although it does have pretty good asynchronous-NOTIFY support,
which I hope you borrowed).

Are you planning to bring this code & doc up to the level at which
it could become part of the standard distribution?

Since your code requires itcl and the existing library doesn't,
I foresee that not everyone will want to switch.  It might be good
to choose a name that will make it clear that this code needs itcl
(I'm thinking libpgitcl, perhaps) so that people will easily see
which is which.
