I, again, give that a firm "maybe". If the warts end up annoying 1% of the users who try to use this feature, then you're right. If they end up making a substantial percentage of people who try to use this feature give up on it, then we've added a bunch of complexity and future code maintenance for little real gain. I'm not ruling out the possibility that you're 100% correct, but I'm not nearly as convinced of that as you are. -- 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
