TBH, I'm not really thrilled about the concept in general; it (zero based indexing support) doesn't meet the standard of necessity for adding to the core API and as stated it's much to magical. If it was me, I'd be making a pgxn extension for zero based arrays that are zero based; it could be 100% SQL wrappers so I'd be pretty easy to install for interested parties. merlin -- Sent via pgsql-hackers mailing list (email@example.com) To make changes to your subscription: http://www.postgresql.org/mailpref/pgsql-hackers
