Thanks for that clarification- it was useful (for me anyway). For my 2c, while I agree that it would work, I'd still rather see this get into core for reasons mentioned elsewhere but which I'll echo here- JSON has become the de-facto data interexchange format on a rather massive scale- it's become what XML was trying to be, in many ways by being simpler. While I agree that the comparison to FTS isn't entirely fair, I also feel that we should still be considering adding new types to core and not try to push everything out as extensions. To add on to that- I feel we still have a ways to go before our extension support will be really *good* (which I certainly hope it to be some day) and I'd rather we not force that on to the mobs of installations out there who will want jsonb. Thanks again, Stephen
