I agree pipelining by itself is not very useful, but at the very least it prevents breaking the connection even if out-of-order is not supported. Implementing out-of-order would have been very painful before 1.4.0 because of the way TCP connections were handled. It should be much easier since 1.4.0 but as far as I know nobody cared enough to start working on it. The fact that very few real-life clients actually make use of it can probably begin to explain why :-/ > I should have said that it supports TCP pipelining with ordered > responses from clients but supports TCP pipelining with out of order > responses when talking to the backend (if the backend supports it).
