It has never been standard practice to ask for comments before the 
development of small features, such as this one. The recently duplicated 
work on allowing multiple "-t" and "-n" options in pg_dump is another 
example (although that is complex enough an RFC might be worth doing).

Anyway, I think this is missing the point. Checking "has this work 
already been done and is sitting in some patch queue somewhere?" before 
doing anything presupposes the existence of a sizeable queue of 
unapplied patches that is hard to find. I don't think either of those 
should be true. I think Matthias' comment is well-founded: the 
committers, myself included, deserve some blame for not making more 
rapid progress on the queue of unapplied patches for 8.1. In the 
meanwhile, the queue should be easier for folks to find (why is the 
"pgpatches" queue the only one linked from postgresql.org, but it is 
almost empty?)
