agentzh forked eval module and made it work with regular subrequests (so 
also with ngx_postgres):

Alternatively, you could use ngx.location.capture() feature from ngx_lua 
module to make the subrequests to PostgreSQL location.

I also believe that the first test case from 
https://github.com/FRiCKLE/ngx_postgres/blob/master/t/eval.t might be of 
interest to you.
