I agree with this, even though in theory (but not in practice) creative use of unix sockets (sorry windows, perhaps some port-allocating and URL mangling can be done instead) and conventions for those would allow even better almost-like-embedded results, methinks. That may still be able to happen. The biggest improvement to that situation is the recent drastic reduction in use of shared memory, and that only became a thing recently. -- fdr -- Sent via pgsql-hackers mailing list (firstname.lastname@example.org) To make changes to your subscription: http://www.postgresql.org/mailpref/pgsql-hackers
