Realistically, we'll support the backwards-compatible syntax for 3-5 years. Which is fine. I suggest that we just gradually deprecate the old syntax from the docs, and then around Postgres 16 eliminate it. I posit that that's better than changing the meaning of the old syntax out from under people. -- Josh Berkus Containers & Databases Oh My! -- Sent via pgsql-hackers mailing list (email@example.com) To make changes to your subscription: http://www.postgresql.org/mailpref/pgsql-hackers
