I think it's way too late for that. I don't see a problem with including it for 10.0, but when the feature freeze has long passed and we also have our first beta out, it's no longer a matter of changing the design or additional functionality, unless there's something that absolutely requires modification. This isn't that. Thom -- Sent via pgsql-hackers mailing list (email@example.com) To make changes to your subscription: http://www.postgresql.org/mailpref/pgsql-hackers
