Yea, that pretty much sums it up.  Based on the number of people who
wanted it applied, I think we need to have a discussion like this. I can
easily go with rejecting it, but I think the discussion is needed to be
fair to the patch author.

So, what do we want to do with this?  Where did we say we didn't want
SELECT?  I never remember that being discussed.  I remember us saying we
never wanted SELECT or VIEWs because it was going to be slow, but once
the SELECT idea came up, I think we decided we wanted that, and views
could be built on top of that.  I certainly never remember us saying we
didn't want SELECT but wanted views.
