ANYENUM?  What's the use-case for that?


Well ... *somebody* suggested it here ... http://archives.postgresql.org/pgsql-hackers/2005-11/msg00457.php

Well, in that usage (ie, for enum I/O functions) it's not actually
necessary that the type system as a whole understand ANYENUM as
"something that any enum type can be cast to", because you're going to
hot-wire the pg_type entries during CREATE ENUM anyway.  What I'm
wondering is if there's a use-case for it during ordinary user
operations with enums.

        

If you look further down in the thread you'll see that I suggested hiding it, because i didn't think there was much use case for it in user code, but you didn't seem to think much of that idea.

cheers
