But pg_stat_statement is a user tool which is expected to have lots of use, and backwards compatibility concerns because of people who might have written tools on top of it. Not so with pageinspect. I don't think we need to put in the same amount of effort. (Even though, really, it's probably not all that difficult to support both cases. I just don't see the point.) -- Álvaro Herrera http://www.2ndQuadrant.com/ PostgreSQL Development, 24x7 Support, Training & Services -- Sent via pgsql-hackers mailing list (firstname.lastname@example.org) To make changes to your subscription: http://www.postgresql.org/mailpref/pgsql-hackers
