I think that's probably mostly a happy coincidence; I'm not committed to a policy of ensuring that all GUCs can be set to whatever value you want without using the space character. Besides, what's so special about enum GUCs? There can certainly be spaces in string-valued GUCs, and you're not going to be able to get around the problem there with one-off kludges. -- Robert Haas EnterpriseDB: http://www.enterprisedb.com The Enterprise PostgreSQL Company -- Sent via pgsql-hackers mailing list (email@example.com) To make changes to your subscription: http://www.postgresql.org/mailpref/pgsql-hackers
