Right.  I had forgotten that thread, but indeed we had agreed to a
definition that would allow flexible control of libpq's SSL behavior.
Looks like no one got round to actually implementing what was hammered
out though.

Note: if you want to take a swipe at implementing that proposal, please
be sure to start from CVS tip.  I mangled all that code just a couple
days ago to allow both old and new protocols to be supported ... so any
patch based on 7.3 is not going to apply ...

                        regards, tom lane
