Can't create secure connection using connection URL #275

It's not possible to specify using a secure connection when connecting with a postgres://user:password@host/database URL.

It doesn't look like JDBC allows for this. SQL Alchemy specifies optional parameters that might be useful.

Could we utilize something like postgres://user:pass@host/database?secure=true?

This matters because I have an application that passes the URL on the command line, and having the secure connection in the URL makes more sense than adding a --secure switch.


ideally yeah the connection string should take those parameters. Also, they PG* environment variables should be used
