Nothing.  My question is merely whether there is any technical
reason why the pgsource object has not made public.

The pgsource object has a set of method names that well
correspond with the PostgreSQL interface in PHP.  So, I thought
the pgsource object would be useful when, say, porting database
applications from PHP to Python.
