I think, yes, it does make sense. Because we are talking
about porting a whole lot of COBOL applications.

Yes, OpenCOBOL...

The ESQL/C or ECPG connector was already written
the Informix quirks in mind, so it fetches only one record
at a time passing it to the application. And similar performance
is expected from ECPG - which excpectation is not fulfilled
currently because libecpg doesn't do the same caching as
ESQL/C does.
Eh, you are talking about a program you wrote for your customer or they wrote
themselves, right? I simply refuse to add this stuff only to fix this situation
for that one customer of yours if it only hits them. Now the thing to discuss
is how common is this situation.

The OpenCOBOL database connector was written by them
but the problem is more generic. There are many "naive"
applications (elsewhere, too) using cursors but fetching
one record at a time perhaps for portability reasons.
This patch provides a big performance boost for those.
