Indeed, I have to agree that's where things are headed, which is
certainly unfortunate but I think it's good that we were able to provide
some additional feedback on what the PG community is looking for.

Having row-level security would be very nice in 8.5.

This feels like a pretty reasonable compromise to me, and was based on
Peter's suggestion of an overall plan, but I'm not a committer and I
havn't seen any response to my request that they comment on that plan.
I'm sure your enthusiasm is appreciated though, and regardless of its
inclusion in 8.4, one of Peter's points was to develop the patches as
smaller changes that build on each other anyway.

	Thanks,
