Firstly, sorry for the delayed response as I got busy with other

To buffer up the queries before flushing them to the socket, I think
"conn->outCount>=65536" is ok to use, as 64k is considered to be safe in
Windows as per comments in pqSendSome() API.

Attached the code patch to replace pqFlush calls with pqBatchFlush in the
asynchronous libpq function calls flow.
Still pqFlush is used in "PQbatchSyncQueue" and
"PQexitBatchMode" functions.

Am failing to see the benefit in allowing user to set
PQBatchAutoFlush(true|false) property? Is it really needed?

Thanks & Regards,
