What? I thought what you wanted back was the void * pointer that had
been registered with a particular callback function. So you use that
callback function. If it's not actually registered, you get a NULL.
This is what is passed to PQaddObjectHooks, along with a conn:
This is all wrong IMHO, not least because it creates ABI problems if you
want to add another hook type later. Register each hook separately, eg
typedef void (*PGCRHook) (PGconn *conn, void *passthrough);
void PQregisterConnResetHook(PGconn *conn, PQCRHook func, void *passthrough);
... repeat for each possible hook ...

One can make a case to break apart the obj hooks structure into
individual register functions, but I think you have a different idea in
your head than what is being proposed. For starters, there is no
passthru pointer to register with a callback (there could be but that is
different than hook data...your register looks more like a user_ptr).
The passthru pointer, what we call hookData, is allocated with a PGconn
(not provided by the user). This is the point of the initHookData callback.
typedef void *(*PGinitHookData)(const PGconn *conn);
PQregisterInitHookData((PGconn *)NULL, (PGinitHookData)func);
PQregisterConnResetHook((PGconn *)NULL, (PGCRHook)func);
conn = PQconnectdb();
When connectdb returns, initHookData has already been called. So, a
call to PQhookData(conn, ????) will work. BUT, what is still missing
from the equation is how to uniquely reference hookData on a conn.
What I was previously suggesting was to use the address of initHookData,
since w/o this address there wouldn't be any hook data to get. Seemed
like a logical choice.
every bit counts
