Why don't we tell people to write a plpgsql loop for the schema.* case as well? I haven't seen any evidence that the schema.* case is more common than other bulk DDL cases like "matches pattern" or "owned by $user" or "grant on all functions that are not security definer" etc. -- Sent via pgsql-hackers mailing list (email@example.com) To make changes to your subscription: http://www.postgresql.org/mailpref/pgsql-hackers
