All,

I was the person who submitted the patch.  I tried to a generic syntax.  I also tried to keep the tablespace concept
simple.  See my posting on HACKERS/GENERAL from a week or 2 ago about the syntax.  I am still interested in working on
this patch with others.  I have many system here that are 500+ gigabytes and growing.  It is a real pain to add more
disk space (I have to backup, drop database(s), rebuild raid set (I am using raid 10) and reload data).

Jim
