Yeah. I mean, it seems similar to what happened with heap_formtuple: the last in-tree users of that function went away in 8.4 (902d1cb35) but we didn't remove the function itself until 9.6 (726117243). It didn't really hurt anyone in the meantime; it was just a function that, in most installs, was probably never called. I think we should do the same thing here: plan to keep the old functions around at least until 11 is out of support, maybe longer, and not worry about it very much. -- 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
