Thank you Robert and Tels.  Yes, Tels's comment sounds plausible as a 
representative real user who expects high availability.  I'm sorry to repeat 
myself, but this feature is for HA, so libpq should attempt to connect to the 
next host when it fails to establish a connection.

Who can conclude this?  I don't think that no feedback from beta users means 
satisfaction with the current behavior.
