We are trying to gather statistics about our queries and get automatic suggestions for what indexes to utilize ...its easier to figure that on queries that are in some format else we have to effectively parse the queries ourself or hack the postgresql parser...which we dont want to do...

Did you mention that the 8.5 code has such a functionality? i would like to download the code and play with it a bit, any pointers what i need to do to  get the XML?

Matt
