I wonder...

Maybe you don't need to override to_timestamp, and you can just add a new code to the format string that to_timestamp understands, ie 'e' or something or 'u' that means 'unix timestamp'?

Please find attached a patch (diff -c against cvs HEAD) to add a function that accepts a double precision argument assumed to be a Unix epoch timestamp and returns timestamp with time zone, and accompanying documentation.


test=# select to_timestamp(200120400);
 1976-05-05 14:00:00+09
(1 row)

If regression tests are required, I will produce some. I'd appreciate any pointers as to what to look for, as they would be my first attempt at writing regression tests.
