What I've seen of Heikki's work thus far has led me to believe that
his reasons for rejecting the patch were good ones, but I don't
specifically what they were. It would be helpful, I think, to
reiterate them or repost links to the relevant messages in the
archives; it would also be great if we could get an estimate of how
close the patch is to being committable. Does it still need massive
work, or is it getting fairly close, or what? Are the issues code
cleanliness/maintainability, bugs, missing functionality?
From our conversations at the PGcon development meeting it seems as
though there are a lot of people for whom this is a high-priority
feature. Perhaps some of them will be willing to help if we give them
enough information to work with.
