You seem to have quite missed my point. If you decide to flush on the
basis of flush-after-certain-message-types-are-sent, then the types to
flush after are precisely Sync and Flush. If you think you want
something different, you are wrong and should think again (or more
likely, insert Flush messages into the outgoing stream at the places
where you want a flush to occur). There is no point in flushing after
any other message type because the backend won't flush its response.
Of course this is all moot if you choose to flush just before waiting
for input (though you'd still better be sure that Flush or Sync was the
last message sent before you do so).

It's actually in ReadyForQuery() these days.
