That's pretty much what we already have with the SPI and procedural language handler infrastructure. PL/Perl, PL/Python, etc exist because we have this. What do you see as missing from the current infrastructure? What can't be done that should be able to be done in those languages? -- Craig Ringer http://www.2ndQuadrant.com/ PostgreSQL Development, 24x7 Support, Training & Services -- Sent via pgsql-hackers mailing list (email@example.com) To make changes to your subscription: http://www.postgresql.org/mailpref/pgsql-hackers
