    I'm still waiting for 2 patches I sent to you to get applied.
    Subjects where:

        rewrite rules patch

        Fix for pg_views/pg_rules and new system views

    Do you need them again?

    Still must tidy up the rewrite stuff and add the  checks  for
    rules  on  select.  But  I would like the two patches applied
    first to get in sync with CVS.

    This requires the second patch, because it  covers  subselect
    backparsing for pg_get_ruledef.

> man pages/sgml synchronization
> generate html/postscript documentation
> generate postmaster pid file and remove flock/fcntl lock code
> CREATE TABLE test (x text, s serial) fails if no database creation permission
> SELECT * FROM pg_rules WHERE pg_rules.oid = pg_class.oid crashes

    Will take a look at it.

> handle oid's on views by either disallowing it or meaningful results
> CREATE INDEX i_test ON pg_class (upper(relname)) fails

    Don't functional indices need an operator class too?
