Sure, but I think what you are doing here isn't on anyone's agenda. I
would imagine that the next step would be to implement foreign tables
using something like dblink's interface as underlying interface. What
you are proposing doesn't really move us closer to that, or I'm
misunderstanding what you are trying to achieve. So what is the purpose
of this patch anyway?
