But it is a "sect1" in libpq.  It should be a "sect1" somewhere that
makes more sense.

Right now it appears here:
	Table of Contents
	1. libpq - C Library
	    1.1. Introduction
	    1.2. Database Connection Functions
	    1.3. Command Execution Functions
	    1.4. Asynchronous Query Processing
	    1.5. The Fast-Path Interface
	    1.6. Asynchronous Notification
	    1.7. Functions Associated with the COPY Command
	    1.8. libpq Tracing Functions
	    1.9. libpq Control Functions
	    1.10. Environment Variables
	    1.11. Files
	    1.12. Threading Behavior
	    1.13. Building Libpq Programs
	    1.14. Example Programs

It doesn't belong in libpq, and it doesn't belong in the Programmer's
