Sure, if it would make sense for it to be capitalised that way in an
appositive clause. PL is an acronym used within the PostgreSQL project
for "procedural language (that can be dynamically loaded)".

The test to apply is: does the synopsis make sense if it is put into
the following template:

    <packagename> is {the,a,an} <synopsis>
