No. We should build something that's suitable for postgres, not

I don't buy this argument at all.

Telling users they simply can't have this information isn't

Meh. Why? Most of that isn't something a normal libpq user is going to

I'm not interested in SSL support for users who don't use or care about
SSL (which would be 'normal libpq users', really).  I've *long* been
frustrated by our poor support of SSL and at how painful it is to get
proper SSL working- and it's been a real problem getting PG to pass the
security compliance requirements because of that poor support.  Let's
stop the rhetoric that PG doesn't need anything but the most basic
SSL/auditing/security capabilities.

I think you just packed up the goalposts for a one-way trip to Mars, but I wonder: What would you consider "proper SSL support"? What exactly are we missing?
