We don't want to implement all-cluster encryption with a simple user API and then realize we need another API for later encryption features, do we? And we are not going to know that if we don't talk about it, but hey, this is just an email thread and I can marshal opposition to the feature later when it appears, and point this all out again. -- Bruce Momjian <br...@momjian.us> http://momjian.us EnterpriseDB http://enterprisedb.com + As you are, so once was I.
