I notice your patch has been accepted, though admit I hadn't noticed it
previously.

I resubmited this patch because Bruce removed it from queue instead of GUC protection patch


Can I ask a question relating to the patch?
How is the scrollability determined?

Scrollable cursors and sorts don't mix very well in terms of
performance, as you may know. Previously, since NOSCROLL was the only
option, this wasn't a problem. Now that we have scrollable cursors, it
is an issue, since according to the doc change the scrollability default
is neither scroll nor noscroll.

default is noscroll


I'm concerned that many PL/pgSQL routines will now run slower because
they may now be considered scrollable when they previously were not. How
is the scrollability determined? Do we look at the kids of FETCH being
used to determine whether we need scrolling? (which would be great) Or
will we have to manually change all existing PL/pgSQL code so that it is
definitely NOSCROLL? (which would be unacceptable). Or?


default is without changes on functionality.
