Phil, did you make any progress with your patch? Your results seemed very encouraging and your implementation interesting. IIRC, the problem was that you weren't interested in working on the "visual/mysqlish" column ordering. As the plan was to decouple column ordering in three different orderings, I don't think it's really a problem if your implementation doesn't support one of them (at least if it doesn't prevent us from having the visual one someday).
I haven't done much with it since February, largely because my available free time evaporated. But I do intend to get back to it when I have a chance. But you're right, the storage position stuff I've worked on is completely independent from display positions, and certainly wouldn't prevent that being added separately.
Is there any chance you keep us posted with your progress and post a preliminary patch exposing your design choices? This could allow other people to see if there are interesting results with their particular database and workload.
Yeah, I'll try to clean things up and post a patch eventually. And if anyone feels like working on the display position piece, let me know; perhaps we could pool our efforts for 8.4. phil ---------------------------(end of broadcast)--------------------------- TIP 1: if posting/reading through Usenet, please send an appropriate subscribe-nomail command to [EMAIL PROTECTED] so that your message can get through to the mailing list cleanly
