Thanks for the report!

Though at first PQconnectdb() had been linked by the SR doc, instead
PQconnectdbParams() seems to have been linked wrongly when it was committed.
How about changing the link so as to point to PQconnectdb() again? Or
copy-pasting the following description from PQconnectdb() to the SR doc?

The passed string can be empty to use all default parameters, or it can
contain one or more parameter settings separated by whitespace. Each
parameter setting is in the form keyword = value. Spaces around the equal
sign are optional. To write an empty value, or a value containing spaces,
surround it with single quotes, e.g., keyword = 'a value'. Single quotes
and backslashes within the value must be escaped with a backslash,
i.e., \' and \\.

The currently recognized parameter key words are the same as above.
