IMHO, yes. I'm not sure exactly what the right way to do it is, but I think we need something along these lines. We've got some pg_dump code - in dumputils.c - that is also linked into other applications such as psql, too, which is another pile of grottiness for which we need a better solution. -- Robert Haas EnterpriseDB: http://www.enterprisedb.com The Enterprise PostgreSQL Company -- Sent via pgsql-hackers mailing list (firstname.lastname@example.org) To make changes to your subscription: http://www.postgresql.org/mailpref/pgsql-hackers
