Actually, there's another way we could do this. Instead of creating pg_shared_class and pg_shared_attribute and moving all of the catalog entries for the shared relations into those tables, we could consider leaving the catalog entries in the unshared copies of pg_class, pg_attribute, etc. and DUPLICATING them in a shared catalog which would only be used prior to selecting a database. Once we selected a database we'd switch to using the database-specific pg_class et al. Obviously that's a little grotty but it might (?) be easier, and possibly a step along the way. -- Robert Haas EnterpriseDB: http://www.enterprisedb.com The Enterprise Postgres Company -- Sent via pgsql-hackers mailing list (email@example.com) To make changes to your subscription: http://www.postgresql.org/mailpref/pgsql-hackers
