Hello

this patch define new function flag - OBFUSCATE. With this flag
encrypted source code is stored to probin column. Password is stored
in GUC_SUPERUSER_ONLY item - it is similar security like SQL Server
does (where privileged users can access system tables with source code
or can use debugger).

ToDo: Dump

Sample:

postgres=# show obfuscator_password;
obfuscator_password
-----------------------
moje supertajne heslo
(1 row)

postgres=# \x
Expanded display is on.
postgres=# create or replace function fx() returns int as $$begin
return -1; end; $$ language plpgsql;
