If you want to minimize the diffs or such a patch, we could as well have an extended version of those APIs. I don't think that for the addition of one argument like a missing_ok that's the way to go, but some people may like that to make this patch less intrusive. -- Michael -- Sent via pgsql-hackers mailing list (email@example.com) To make changes to your subscription: http://www.postgresql.org/mailpref/pgsql-hackers
