What I am asking myself is: why does that have to go through the normal 
PQconnectdb*  api? This is something completely new and very well might grow 
more features that are not necessarily easy to press into PQconnectdb().

PQstartServer(const char **keywords, const char **values);

or whatever seems to be more future proof especially considering the 
possibility that this will grow into something more featureful.
