I am unsure too.  I would not back out a patch for nonspecific concerns
from one person, but from two people I reverted it.  Tom wants more eyes
on it, but I don't know how that is going to happen, especially since
Peter, who has done a lot of GUC work, has reviewed it already, and so
have I.

I will keep the patches and if no one works on it, again ask to apply it
before we finish 8.2, and see if there are still objections.  If there
are still objections, we will have to vote on whether we want it
