I'm just going to remove the test. This is not very future-proof and an ugly pattern if it gets copied to other places. We need to work on a more sensible way for ALTER TABLE to report what it did, but a solution based on what GUCs the build-farm happens to set doesn't seem like it's justified for the narrowness of the case we're testing here. Whether or not we allow this case to work without a rewrite is in some sense arbitrary. There's no real reason it can't be done; rather, we're just exercising restraint to minimize the risk of future bugs. So I don't want to go to great lengths to test it. -- 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
