OK, but I think it's also going to cost you an extra syscache lookup, no? You're going to have to check for this new support function first, and then if you don't find it, you'll have to check for the original one. I don't think there's any higher-level caching around opfamilies to save our bacon here, is there? -- Robert Haas EnterpriseDB: http://www.enterprisedb.com The Enterprise PostgreSQL Company -- Sent via pgsql-hackers mailing list (email@example.com) To make changes to your subscription: http://www.postgresql.org/mailpref/pgsql-hackers
