We read all the " Chapter 21. Server Programming Interface" with SPI doc.

This seems _really_ interresting, make me remember of outline statments in


1) how to find some sample code? are SPI statments can be called from
/into ecpg?

2) if prepared statments and stored execution plan exist, why can't thos be used
from any client interface or simple sql?

3) You tell us we can "move to the backend" some queries: do you mean we would
have better performances with stored functions in plpgsql? 

Thanks a lot Hannu, I promise to stop soon with questions :-)

This is _so_ important for us..

Best regards & wishes.
