I do not like Pavel's feature, this is a subjective opinion. This feature
does not provide a correct solution for the use case, this is an objective
fact. The presented feature does not have a real use case, this is too bad.
Oh, also, you might want to tell Oracle and the many people who use
package variables that.
As it can be used safely with nested transaction, I have no doubt that
they do that, and that auditors check that carefully when auditing code:-)
[...] Your unwillingness to listen to anyone else isn't doing your
argument any favours though.
Hmmm. I'm far from perfect and I have a limited supply of patience when
logic does not always apply in a long discussion.
However I think that my review of Pavel proposal is fair, with a clear
separation of objective (proven) facts and subjective but argumented
opinions. I do not think that I can contribute anything more by continuing
argumenting, so I wish I would not have been dragged back into this
Despite a lot of effort, Pavel proposal is still about a untransactional
(by default) session variables. Too bad. Time out for me. I'm deeply
against that, I have said it: I think it would harm PostgreSQL to provide
such a misleading security feature. Then I'm done. If a committer wants to
add untransactional session variables with permissions, it is their
priviledge, and my blessing is not needed anyway.
