HDBC driver interface for PostgreSQL 8.x

Written by John Goerzen, jgoerzen\@complete.org

/NOTE ON DATES AND TIMES/

The recommended correspondence between PostgreSQL date and time types and HDBC SqlValue
types is:

* SqlLocalDate: DATE

* SqlLocalTimeOfDay: TIME WITHOUT TIME ZONE

* SqlZonedLocalTimeOfDay: TIME WITH TIME ZONE

* SqlLocalTime: TIMESTAMP WITHOUT TIME ZONE

* SqlZonedTime: TIMESTAMP WITH TIME ZONE

* SqlUTCTime: TIMESTAMP WITH TIME ZONE

* SqlDiffTime: INTERVAL

* SqlPOSIXTime: NUMERIC

* SqlEpochTime: INTEGER

* SqlTimeDiff: INTERVAL

Other combinations are possible, and may even be converted automatically.
The above simply represents the types that seem the most logical correspondence,
and thus are tested by the HDBC-PostgreSQL test suite.

   Provided the local libpq library is thread-safe, multiple 'Connection's may be used
   to have concurrent database queries.  Concurrent queries issued on a single 
   'Connection' will be performed serially.

   When the local libpq library is not thread-safe (ie. it has not been compiled with 
   --enable-thread-safety), only a single database function will be performed at a time.
