I don't think that creating such a dependency is acceptable. Even if we didn't mind the dependency, you said yourself that contrib/postgresql_fdw's validator will accept stuff that's not appropriate for dblink. If we don't think postgresql_fdw_validator belongs in core after all, we should just move it to dblink. regards, tom lane -- Sent via pgsql-hackers mailing list (email@example.com) To make changes to your subscription: http://www.postgresql.org/mailpref/pgsql-hackers
