It is now \set ON_ERROR_ROLLBACK, and PQexec seems right for that.
Also, this isn't something like \d where anyone would want to see the
queries, I think.

Added. Patch just posted.

Changed, as you see above.

Interesting. I thought this would fail, but it doesn't:
test=> \set ON_ERROR_ROLLBACK on
test=> savepoint user1;
ERROR: syntax error at or near "lkjasdfsadf" at character 1
LINE 1: lkjasdfsadf;
test=> rollback to savepoint user1;
and I think this is the reason:
test=> SAVEPOINT psql1;
test=> SAVEPOINT user1;
test=> SAVEPOINT psql1;
ERROR: syntax error at or near "lkjasd" at character 1
LINE 1: lkjasd;
test=> ROLLBACK TO psql1;
test=> ROLLBACK TO user1;
What Greg's code does, effectively, is to move the savepoint down below
the SAVEPOINt/RELEASE/ROLLBACK so it doesn't discard the user command.

Good question, or rather, should ON_ERROR_ROLLBACK have an effect when
commands come from a file? There is no way to test for the error in
psql so it seems you would never want the transaction to continue after
an error. I am inclined to make ON_ERROR_ROLLBACK work only for
interactive sessions, just like ON_ERROR_STOP works only for
