Thank you, that does look much cleaner. >> >> Please take a look to see if I broke something. > > > I hear no complaints, so committed. Thanks! > Thanks. Just for the record, I'd previously promised some long running performance tests with my proposed -P option for pgbench, which are now done and showed a 0.2% degradation with my patch. With enough data collected, that difference is statistically significant, but probably not practically significant. It was with my original version, but I can't imagine your version being different in performance. Also, this test is very pessimistic. Since the primary key look-up in the pl/pgSQL look up runs in a portal each time, it pushes the locks to the parent each time. If the lookup was instead running as the inner side of a nested loop, it would not do the reassign on each loop.
