If PL/Javascript is a serious consideration, how will int64 and numeric be handled?

Please don't top-post on the PostgreSQL lists. See <http://idallen.com/topposting.html>

Unfortunately, I think the short answer is "not very well". In theory we cauld add in new types to a Javascript interpreter to handle them, but that would still leave you scrambling to handle user defined types.

One of the advantages of plpgsql is that it can handle any Postgres data type without having to do anything special.

The truth is that different PLs meet different needs and have different strengths and weaknesses.
