Unfortunately not in 7.2.  I don't know how big a change it'd be.  Since
I'm not personally planning to work on it (seems more low level than I'm
ready for), I don't know of an ETA.

Hmm, actually it looks like it might be a bit complicated to get the
locking right for concurrent connections (might require something like
the foreign key constraints) although the single connection one is easy.
