FWIW, I'd much rather see us get it right the first time than release PG10 with a syntax that we'll regret later. I do not think that beta2, or even beta3, is too late for such a change. I'm not taking a position on whether this proposal is actually better than what we have. But if there's a consensus that it is, we should go ahead and do it, not worry that it's too late. regards, tom lane -- Sent via pgsql-hackers mailing list (email@example.com) To make changes to your subscription: http://www.postgresql.org/mailpref/pgsql-hackers
