That's not clear to me at all.  IIRC, the original idea was Tom's, and
the idea is to make it possible to have, for example, a psql session
connected to a standalone database, which can't be done right now.  I
don't use standalone mode much, but when I do, I'd sure like to have
the psql interface rather than the existing standalone mode interface.
 I'm not aware that there's anything in this patch which targets any
other use case; if there is, sure, rip it out.  But let's not assume
this is going in a bad direction, especially considering who it was
that suggested the idea originally.
