No, it's all right. In fact, I believe my boss spoke to Bruce about

may even be able to get the code, but to be honest, it isn't that much;
it would probably be just as easy for it to be re-written as it would be
to fit it into Postgres.

Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak out and
remove all doubt.
