Out of curiosity, why does this suppress inlining?
Anyways, my preference would be to have syntax by which to say: resolve
at declaration time using the then-in-effect search_path and store
as-qualified. This could just be SET search_path without an assignment.
CREATE FUNCTION ... AS $$ ... $$ SET search_path;
Another possibility would be to have a way to set a search_path for all
expressions in a given schema, something like:
SET SCHEMA my_schema DEFAULT search_path = ...;
which would apply to all expressions in schema elements in schema
- CHECK expressions
- INDEX expressions
- VIEWs and MATERIALIZED VIEWs
- FUNCTION and STORED PROCEDURE bodies
CREATE SCHEMA IF NOT EXISTS my_schema;
SET SCHEMA my_schema DEFAULT search_path = my_schema, my_other_schema;
CREATE OR REPLACE FUNCTION foo() ... AS $$ ... $$;
