It is possible that that can be made to work, but it's a research project, not something to be crammed into 9.2 at the last possible minute.

Leave the extensibility ideas for a future to_json() function. regards, tom lane -- Sent via pgsql-hackers mailing list (firstname.lastname@example.org) To make changes to your subscription: http://www.postgresql.org/mailpref/pgsql-hackers
