Doesn't seem worth it to me. At least, "SELECT nnnn" makes some sense: nnnn rows were selected. "CREATE TABLE nnnn" means what? nnnn tables were created? What might make sense is to delegate this additional information to separate fields in a future protocol revision. -- Sent via pgsql-hackers mailing list (firstname.lastname@example.org) To make changes to your subscription: http://www.postgresql.org/mailpref/pgsql-hackers
