Probably not many. The thing that's bothering me is the action-at-a-distance property of the positive-logic switches. How are we going to explain this? "By default, --schema-pre-load, --data-only, --schema-post-load are all ON. But if you turn one of them ON (never mind that it was already ON by default), that changes the defaults for the other two to OFF. Then you have to turn them ON (never mind that the default for them is ON) if you want two out of the three categories." You have to bend your mind into a pretzel to wrap it around this behavior. Yeah, it might be convenient once you understand it, but how long will it take for the savings in typing to repay the time to understand it and the mistakes along the way? regards, tom lane -- Sent via pgsql-patches mailing list (firstname.lastname@example.org) To make changes to your subscription: http://www.postgresql.org/mailpref/pgsql-patches
