Greate job. But I'm worried about add_missing_from enabled. See:
euler=# delete from t3 using t1 where b > 500;
DELETE 4
euler=# select * from t3;
x | y
---+---
(0 rows)
In this case, I 'forget' to do the join and it delete all rows from t3.
I know that user needs to pay attention, but ... What about default
add_missing_from to off?
The other case is:
euler=# select * from t1 where t1.a = t3.x;
NOTICE: adding missing FROM-clause entry for table "t3"
NOTICE: adding missing FROM-clause entry for table "t3"
a | b
---+----
5 | 10
(1 row)
euler=# delete from t1 where t1.a = t3.x;
DELETE 1
euler=#
I think we need at least a NOTICE here. Of course it could be extended
to UPDATE too.
BTW, what about regression tests for UPDATE ... FROM?
