Actually, it would be nice to be able to reserve some. It would help stop patch bitrot. I know Tom Dunstan wanted to do just that while he was working on the enums patch.



Yes it would be very. If Tom Dunstan decided not to do that I would like

You misunderstood me. I meant he wanted to make use of such a facility, not that he wanted to build it.

By all means float ideas on this - the problem seems to me to be ensuring that reservations are time limited, but no doubt Tom Lane and Bruce will have opinions ...
