1) because I didn't know about it
2) because the version of postgresql I run doesn't support it.

However, it does exactly what I need so thanks very much.  

I'll be upgrading my live server as soon as possible, but in the meantime can 
anyone suggest  a way I can do the same thing using Postgresql 8.1 until I 
can evaluate 8.4 on my live systems?
