I'm pretty sure that the only argument for it is to ease migration of software from other DBMS products which allow that non-standard syntax for people who have chosen to use the non-standard form of the statement instead of the standard syntax (which is also available in all cases that I know of). If the SQL standard were static, I would actually lean toward allowing it, to make it easier for people to switch to PostgreSQL. The biggest down side I see is the possibility that some future version of the standard might implement some new syntax which is more difficult to implement if we need to also support this non-standard variation. -- Kevin Grittner EDB: 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
