I am sorry, but I disagree - the discussion about implementation was more
than two months, and I believe so anybody who would to discuss had enough
time to discuss. This feature and design was changed significantly and
there was not anybody who sent feature design objection.

This feature has only small relation to SQL PIVOTING feature - it is just
form of view and I am agree with Daniel about sense of this feature.
