Fair enough if we decide that - but we should make that decision knowing that we're leaving the JDBC and .Net people in a bad position where they are not likely to be able to implement his. The JDBC people have a theoretical chance if the JDK is open. The .Net people are stuck with schannel that doesn't support it at this point. It might well do in the future (since it's in the standard); but they're at the mercy of Microsoft. -- Magnus Hagander Me: http://www.hagander.net/ Work: http://www.redpill-linpro.com/ -- Sent via pgsql-hackers mailing list (firstname.lastname@example.org) To make changes to your subscription: http://www.postgresql.org/mailpref/pgsql-hackers
