I don't agree about moving this to a client.  It is too important for
that.  Many admin apps and psql need this capability and having it in a
client just requires everyone to reinvent the wheel.

Let me think over you issues and see what I can come up with.

The patch isn't that big and already does 90% of what we need.  We just
need ot get that extra 10%.
