Right. I can see your point, but it's my understanding that -hackers is
really the ones supposed to decide on this.
It would ultimately have been core's decision, but the discussion should
have happened on -hackers. There was no reason for it to be private.
That blame certainly belongs to me and I apologize for jumping that and
adding it to contrib without any -hackers discussion.
It is definitely a timing issue since I write this very email from JFK,
boarding a flight to Hong Kong in less than an hour and will be mostly
offline for the rest of the week.
I agree with the technical issue Tom brought up. Slony itself doesn't
rely on strtoull() either and this slipped through. I will see that I
fix that by using Slony's int64 scanning code. I can work on it during
the flight and commit the fix when I arrive in the hotel.
To Magnus: It certainly would have been cool to have this in core, but
two weeks ago we didn't know if we can get the code into shape for that
before BETA (as it is right now I would say it still isn't). So we shot
for the next best target, which was contrib, where post BETA changes
aren't as critical.
