Thanks for sharing these goals, which was an ideal first step.  I think your
next step is to pick a self-contained subset of those goals to implement as a
first project.  Then, start a thread describing a planned design for that
particular subset.  I recommend starting either with support for the OpenSSL
compatibility mode of LibreSSL or with SCTP.

When you send a design proposal for SCTP support, please explain why a person
should choose to reach PostgreSQL over SCTP in lieu of TCP.  The topic of SCTP
support in PostgreSQL has never come up before.
