embodied by the ISO. No doubt ^_^
I couldn't disagree more.
If we were to implement anything, it'd be PL/PSM
(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SQL/PSM). I'm sure it's as bizarre and
quirky as anything else the SQL committee has brought forth, but it's at
least a standard(ish) language.
Creating a new language when there are already many existing contenders
is absolutely nonsensical. Other than PL/PSM the only thing that'd make
any sense would be to *pick a suitable existing language* like Lua or
language runtime that's compiled in by default.
That is in my opinion a way more sensible choice. To bless
