Hum. So without 0006 or beyond, there's not much benefit for the
PostgreSQL users, and you are not too confident about 0006 or
beyond. Then I would think it is a little bit hard to justify in
putting 000[2-5] into 9.6. I really like this feature and would like
to see in PostgreSQL someday, but I'm not sure if we should put the
patches (0002-0005) into PostgreSQL now. Please let me know if there's
some reaons we should put the patches into PostgreSQL now.
