That's a nice idea, except that we've got a pretty well defined API regarding how to determine what the privileges on a table are, and many different UIs which use it. Fixing it in psql (if it needs to be.. iirc, \d or \d+ may already show it) doesn't really address the problem, in my view. Thanks, Stephen
