Kevin, I do see your logic now, but this thing is a common mistake - it means that this seems counter-intuitive to some people. What would happen if we applied Occam's razor and just removed this rule?

That would make PostgreSql a slightly better product, right? -- View this message in context: http://postgresql.1045698.n5.nabble.com/why-semicolon-after-begin-is-not-allowed-in-postgresql-tp5779905p5780216.html Sent from the PostgreSQL - hackers mailing list archive at Nabble.com. -- Sent via pgsql-hackers mailing list (firstname.lastname@example.org) To make changes to your subscription: http://www.postgresql.org/mailpref/pgsql-hackers
