This is a natural consequence of having two almost-but-not-quite-the-same grammars handing the same shared language. There are a similar set of annoyances compiling C with a C++ compiler as we all know. In a perfect world, SQL procedural extensions would be a proper superset and we'd have *one* grammar handling everything. Among other niceties this would make moving forward with stored procedures a much simpler discussion. Well, C'est la vie :-D. merlin -- Sent via pgsql-hackers mailing list (email@example.com) To make changes to your subscription: http://www.postgresql.org/mailpref/pgsql-hackers
