I'd like to consider such a thing, but it seems like utter pie in the
sky. Do you really believe that elog() could know enough about what it's
printing to apply such a filter? Do you think elog() should be allowed
to do catalog accesses in order to find out what the filter conditions
should be (hint: no)? Perhaps you think that we don't ever need to emit
error messages before we've analyzed a query enough to figure out which
tables are involved? Let alone which columns? Let alone which literals
elsewhere in the query string might be somehow associated with those
I suggest that you should spend most of your meeting tomorrow tamping down
hard on the expectations of whoever you're speaking with.
