Well, if they are, it's only by chance, because there isn't much of
anything verifying that they are safe :-(.

It makes sense for libpq to be able to execute within a C++ application.
As was already debated, it's not nearly as clear that it makes sense to
try to use C++ for backend modules.

In any case, you are not helping here.  I asked for a technical solution
to a specific problem, and you are giving me political arguments.
