I agree completely. That's why I've suggested a plugin approach. That way Itagaki can have his performance, the rest of us don't need to fret and yet we hold open the door indefinitely for additional ways of doing it. And we can test it on production systems with realistic workloads. If one clear way emerges as best, we adopt that plugin permanently. -- Simon Riggs www.2ndQuadrant.com PostgreSQL Training, Services and Support -- Sent via pgsql-patches mailing list (firstname.lastname@example.org) To make changes to your subscription: http://www.postgresql.org/mailpref/pgsql-patches
