BTW, PGOPTIONS is actually just the environment-variable fallback for
the pgoptions argument to PQsetdbLogin() or the options=whatever
component of the conninfo string for PQconnectdb() --- it's the same

for getting at the same functionality, and any documentation patch
should be clear about this.
