 Project:      Drupal
 Version:      4.6.2

First, welcome among contributors and thanks for the patch, it looks
useful. There are a few general problems: only bugfixes go into 4.6.x
everything else, like this should be for HEAD. Other problem is with
coding style, we use 

if () {
else {

also you spacing issues, like spaces are a dot. The rule, as explained
to me by Steven is that there is never a space between a dot and a
quote always otherwise. There is also coding style guideline in CVS.

Drupal does not allow for PostgreSQL connections via unix socket.  I
have written a patch that allows it to do so.  The effect of this patch
is that a hostname of 'localhost' in a pgsql:// $db_url will use Unix
sockets unless a port it set in the URL.  A hostname of ''
will use TCP/IP as before.

Unix socket: pgsql://user:pass@localhost/db
TCP/IP: pgsql://user:pass@localhost:4444/db
TCP/IP: pgsql://user:pass@
TCP/IP: pgsql://user:pass@

The patch is attached to this bug report.  From a top-level Drupal
directory, type 'patch -p0 < /path/to/drupal-pgsql-socket.patch' to
apply it (omit the single-quotes).
