Well, that, or you can use another implementation. There are many, and PyPy should be seriously considered given its JIT and how much faster it is for raw computation power, which is what a DB is most likely going to care about. I bet PyPy's sandboxing is a lot better as well. Making a postgres-interphasing pypy fork I guess would be a nice project, it's as "simple" as implementing all of plpy's API in RPython and translating a C module out of it. No, I'm not volunteering ;-) -- Sent via pgsql-hackers mailing list (email@example.com) To make changes to your subscription: http://www.postgresql.org/mailpref/pgsql-hackers
