That might be a way forward, but for someone who doesn't use tablespaces and just wants and all-on-one backup, this change would make that more cumbersome, because now you'd always have more than one file to deal with. It might be worth considering a mode that combines all those tar files into a super-tar. I'm personally not a user of the tar mode, so I don't know what a typical use would be, though. -- Sent via pgsql-hackers mailing list (email@example.com) To make changes to your subscription: http://www.postgresql.org/mailpref/pgsql-hackers
