In Postgres anything that Postgres manages itself only happens at
commit. So aside from table modifications and schema changes NOTIFY
only takes place at commit. But if you have a pl language like plperl
or plsh write to a file that's outside Postgres's sphere of influence
and it will happen right away.
I'm not familiar with PGQ, I'm not sure which tack it takes. Its
documentation should have an answer though.
