I haven't read the patch. My understanding from the discussion is that it would allow callers of the indexam to receive a hunk of index pointers and process them rather than have to wait for the complete index scan to finish before processing any. Is that it? In general I think we need to be more open to incremental improvements. I think there are several fronts on which we refuse patches to do X because it's useless without Y and have nobody working on Y because they would have to solve X first. -- Gregory Stark EnterpriseDB http://www.enterprisedb.com Ask me about EnterpriseDB's On-Demand Production Tuning -- Sent via pgsql-patches mailing list (email@example.com) To make changes to your subscription: http://www.postgresql.org/mailpref/pgsql-patches
