It would be nice if the PostgreSQL provider would accept the service parameter alternatively to hostname/port (and potentially database)

This would allow an easier change the underlying postgresql server (e.g. in case of a crash or new server installation) since one would connect to the service rather than a hostname and port.

This is also important in case of a db-replication and switchover.

The provider connection dialogue should offer an additional line named "service" and, if the service value is present, it would have precedence over host and port.
