Yeah I thought about that, it is the word "FORCE" that bothers me.
When you use FORCE there is an assumption that no matter what, it
plows through (think rm -f). So if we don't use FROZEN, that's cool
but FORCE doesn't work either.

Isn't that exactly what this FORCE option being contemplated would do
though?  Plow through the entire relation, regardless of what the VM
says is all frozen or not?

Seems like FORCE is a good word for that to me.

Except that we aren't FORCING a vacuum. That is the part I have contention with. To me, FORCE means:

No matter what else is happening, we are vacuuming this relation (think locks).

But I am also not going to dig in my heals. If that is truly what -hackers come up with, thank you at least considering what I said.
