It seems far too late to be considering any major rewrite for v12; even assuming that there was consensus on the rewrite being an improvement, which I bet there won't be. "Two or three weeks from now" we'll be thinking about pushing 12.0 out the door. We can't be accepting major definitional changes at that point. If a solid case can be made that ECPG's DECLARE STATEMENT was done wrong, we'd be better off to just revert the feature out of v12 and try again, under less time pressure, for v13. regards, tom lane
