Not if what the OP wants is the lotus notes type functionality where
things are updated on the client, and at some later date updated on
the main server and all data inconsistencies are automagically taken
OTOH, if all the OP wanted was to just have plain old client - server
architecture, yeah, that's built right in to psql / libpq...
