it would be interesting to know if it would be included, IFF the author
publishes it under BSD.

(the authors webpage gives the impression that he is happy to share it.
the fact that the reference to GPL is well hidden in the authors
webpage, indicates that the author did not really think much about which
license he chooses, i.e. he might be happy to change to BSD.)

as i said, i think the lack of recursive queries (whatever syntax they
are in) are one of the major drawbacks of postgres when compared to
other databases.

cheers,
jacob
