FWIW, you might want to put some safeguards in there so that you don't try to inadvertently kill the backend that's running that function... unfortunately I don't think there's a built-in function to tell you the PID of the backend you're connected to; if you're connecting via TCP you could use inet_client_addr() and inet_client_port(), but that won't work if you're using the socket to connect.

There is a pg_backend_pid() function, even if it's not documented with the other functions (it's in the stats function stuff for some reason).
