Why not just set up an ssh2 tunnel with both encryption and compression
and access your remote db over that ?

I know that possibility, but I'm just thinking probably an "ad hoc" protocol for applications that needs to locate, range, skip, lookup, bookmark etc... a lot
of records, could increase the system performance.
By that, I don't want to discuss about PostgreSQL performance by itself but about a to much "generalist" protocol. With libpq, after you got the result, you have to implement locally some find, range etc, routines and on the other side there is a DBMS born to do that!

My application need both type of connection LAN/WAN and here (in Italy) still some lack of wide-band infrastructure. Also installing certificates on a LAN contest is a bit a "dirty" way to solve the problem.
