Okay, then I implemented this using Socket.getInputStream().available()  

Proof of concept attached.

PGConnection.getNotifies() now processes peding Async Notifies first - no
need to send polling queries to the server anymore. The result is zero
network traffic in the idle case.

Any comments?

I am unclear as to how to handle possible protocol errors (e.g. when what
we end up reading from the connection is not an 'A'sync Notify).  
Theoretically, in a working connection this should not happen though.
