hello everybody,

one of our customers wants to store the code of interpreted procedures (PL/pgSQL, PL/Perl) and so in an encrypted way. so the idea we had to add one more column to pg_proc telling us whether prosrc is encrypted or not. people could chose then whether to crypt codes there or not (speed of decryption can be an issue).

should not be hard to implement ...

what do people think about this feature?

Perhaps you could give us a justification for it. Are you intending to have stored procs contain security sensitive information? Or is this an attempt to hide closed source code from prying eyes? Where would the encryption keys be stored? And how would it work with pg_dump?

This doesn't sound very well thought out, frankly.
