Also as mentioned upthread there are effective workarounds if you poke
around a bit. This is a FAQ, and there are about 3-4 solid methods
(if you search the archives) that cover most problems you would be
looking at multiple results sets to solve. I suppose this is why
there hasn't been more of an effort to do this earlier. People asking
for this are typically dispossessed SQL server developers who haven't
quite gotten used to the postgres way of things. Not that proper
stored procedures wouldn't be great -- they would be -- but they are
not the only way to solve these types of problems.
