I don't think it'd be ridiculously complicated to make it work and I don't mind if someone wants to try. However, it wasn't interesting to me, so I didn't spend time on it. A lot of these parameters are intertwined, and I wanted to avoid trying to boil the ocean. But I'm not allergic to follow-on patches. -- Robert Haas EnterpriseDB: http://www.enterprisedb.com The Enterprise PostgreSQL Company -- Sent via pgsql-hackers mailing list (firstname.lastname@example.org) To make changes to your subscription: http://www.postgresql.org/mailpref/pgsql-hackers
