I totally disagree. It is a language level restriction, not a database
level one, so why back it into Postgres? Just parse 'conninfo' when it is 
pg_(p)connect() and check it against the configuration setting.

system("/usr/local/pgsql/bin/psql -U jim -c \"select 'i got
                        in';\" template1");
