Brilliant! I had no idea it was that simple. SetUserId seems to be
extremely lightweight and just what I need. By using it, I can let my
ClassLoader execute with other restrictions than the function caller
(bypassing SPI is not so good for me since the loader is fairly complex
and will access more than one table).
Thanks for the advice,
