I think it is important to remember that the current version of
PL/python is pretty weak compared to its counter parts (Specifically
PL/Perl). If the new version, is adequately written to community
standards and increases PL/Python's capabilities we need to seriously
If we can address any issues with this module, let's commit it as
Pl/pythonng3 or something.
Anyway, I am +1 on reviewing this patch for viability.
I would love to never touch plPerl for advanced procedures again.
