Dead or not, it still works, even against 8.4. I have many programs
that use it. It's simply a wrapper around the libpq interface and as
long as the libpq interface remains stable (which we go to great pains
to do), so will this module.

Given the talk of importing some perl module into the postgresql tree
it just seemed more logical to me to take something that was close to
libpq and had no external dependancies than taking a module with an
external dependancy (namely DBI).
