We could use something like query_arrived_timestamp or something like that, but it kind of confuses the distinction between it and transaction_timestamp(), and for 99% of users, they don't even realize you can send multiple statements in a single query. I am thinking we call it statement_timestamp (like statement_timeout) and just document its behavior. No one has problems with statement_timeout(), and that has the exact same behavior as statement_timestamp() will have. -- Bruce Momjian http://candle.pha.pa.us EnterpriseDB http://www.enterprisedb.com + If your life is a hard drive, Christ can be your backup. + ---------------------------(end of broadcast)--------------------------- TIP 2: Don't 'kill -9' the postmaster
