Yeah, I don't much like that either. But I don't think we can avoid
some refactoring there; as designed, conversion of an error message into
user-visible form is too tightly tied to receipt of the message.

Thinking about it, though, it seems to me that we could get away with
always performing both styles of conversion and sticking both strings
into the PGresult. That would eat a little more space but not much.
Then we just need to add API to let the application get at both forms.
