Because several people want this patch, Tom has withdrawn his
objection.  Jan also stated that the elog(NOTICE) was good enough for
Patch applied.
I do not know if this is 7.1.3 stuff or 7.2 stuff. I am going to ask.

It is implemented on CREATE *only*, the function definition will NOT follow the table definition. That means that our update scripts should drop and recreate all functions affected. Good enough, I should think.

Initial response from Karel Zak is that it will be in 7.2, not 7.1.3.

Yes, that makes sense.  The PG group avoids adding new language features in minor-number releases as they're in essence maintenance releases.
