I would seriously consider just removing one of the modes. Having two modes is complex enough, and then having different defaults in different versions, and fuzzy recommendations like, it's better for "smaller systems", it's quite confusing. I don't think it's a fundamental problem to say, you need 2 connections to use this feature. (For example, you need a second connection to issue a cancel request. Nobody has ever complained about that.) -- Sent via pgsql-hackers mailing list (email@example.com) To make changes to your subscription: http://www.postgresql.org/mailpref/pgsql-hackers
