I am not sure how to deal with this.  I have updated the 7.3/CVS docs to
match the include file and code, which has no consts.

The issue with PQcmdTuples() and PQcmdStatus() are that they return
*result structure member pointers.  The patch makes the *result a const,
then we have to return the values as const's.  The code compiled OK, so
I assume that is fine.  How does that sound to others, or should we keep
the result non-const?
