I think that's a very good idea, and I'm happy to be locked into such a room.

I think such a discussion will be very fruitful,
given the others in the room have also
already decided they want a new language
and are there to discuss "the next version of the language",
instead of debating why they don't think we need a new language.

It would also be good if those people could bring laptops
with all their plpgsql code bases, to check if any of
the proposed possibly non-backwards compatible
syntax proposals would break nothing, just a few functions,
or a lot of functions in their code bases.
