You responded with a statement about synonyms having cost in response to a
message of mine in response to a message from postgres(at)cybertec(dot)at which
said "the costs will only be added if the "real table" is not found.
therefore there is no impact on "normal" users." Your idea and that of the
person who submitted this patch thus seem to be slightly different. Maybe
I'm confused, but to me this seems to show incomplete acceptance of this
point when the patch submitter and one of the vocal proponents have
different models in mind. I'd rather the feature follows the model you
described (although I may have greater concerns of the cost) because it
seems consistent with other lookups.
