Well, then that's a sign that the tasks/process need to be rescoped. > However, the only thing that Peter could really do about this of his own > authority is to revert 1e8a850, which I certainly think should be the last > resort not the first.

There's other things that should, but don't, really use the asynchronous API, e.g. postgres_fdw. As a measure of last restart we could add a libpq workaround that forces a pqSocketCheck() at the right moment, while still establishing a connection. That's not good from an interruptability perspective, but better than blocking for the entire connection establishment.
