Do we have an idea how to measure the increased overhead? Just from reading the description, I'm guessing that the increased cost would happen when the extension calls back into core, but maybe that doesn't happen often enough to worry about? -- 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
