I'm not sure which part of "no" you didn't understand, but to be clear: you don't get to break existing installations. Assuming that this opclass is sufficiently better than the existing one, it would sure be nice if it could become the default; but I've not seen any proposal in this thread that would allow that without serious upgrade problems. I think the realistic alternatives so far are (1) new opclass is not the default, or (2) this patch gets rejected. We should probably expend some thought on a general approach to replacing the default opclass for a datatype, because I'm sure this will come up again. Right now I don't see a feasible way. regards, tom lane -- Sent via pgsql-hackers mailing list (firstname.lastname@example.org) To make changes to your subscription: http://www.postgresql.org/mailpref/pgsql-hackers
