Can you explain, for our benefit, the use case for this? Specifically,
what can be done with synonyms which can't be done with search_path and
I ask partly because I've migrated some Oracle databases to PostgreSQL,
and did not find replacing the functionality of synonyms to be at all
difficult. Presumably you've run into a case which was difficult?
BTW, I have a specific use case for *column* synonyms which isn't
currently covered by our existing tools.
