hi, Andrew,

thanks for the quick response.

M understanding is that Alter Foreign Table can change the option values by
user. What I need is to change the value programmatic inside foreign data
wrapper code, and hope someone already done so I can learn from the
existing design.

I thought this email list is for developer(ie, who change the code), and
pgsql-general for users. Hence, send to here. If it is wrong place, I will
switch the question over.

Anyway, appreciate the response. And good point on Alter-foreign-table,
probably some logic there I can copy over to create-table....
