Today I found on net a documentation to DB2 "CREATE VARIABLE"  command. I
had not any idea, so this statement exists already, although it is old
feature - I found a doc from 2007.

The DB2 design is very similar to my proposal - secured access, persistent
metadata, unshared untransactional data limmited by session.

They doesn't use a access functions - the access is with notation
schemaname.variablename. I proposed this syntax as next step in

The DB2 authors doesn't propose transactional variables - when user needs
XA behave, then global temporary tables should be used.

My patch was marked as "returned with feedback".  Personally, I had not a
idea what can be next step and what is preferred design, if some preferred
design exists. I don't know what I have to change on my proposal.

I understand, so there are two different concepts - 1. using variables for
adhoc writing like T-SQL, MySQL or 2. using variables as global session
objects for stored procedures.

The @1 area is partially solved by psql session variables or by pgAdmin
scripting functionality. @2 is partially solved by GUC but without
possibility to set a access rights.

I didn't found any implementation of XA variables or persistent variables
on the world.
