Heikki, it is the list of updated patches:

- List of updates:
  * Permission checks on SET/SHOW were removed.
  * Add a new permission: db_database:{superuser}
    sepgsqlCheckDatabaseSuperuser() is invoked from superuser_arg()
    to check whether the clietn can perform as a superuser in this
    database, or not.
  * Permission checks on procedure installation is separated.
  * Permission checks on install/load C-libraries are separated.
  * Read file checks on pg_read_file() is added.

- Scale of patches:
  * r1710 (the latest revision)
    60 files changed, 3686 insertions(+), 10 deletions(-), 4952 modifications(!)
  * r1704 (previous revision)
    60 files changed, 4048 insertions(+), 11 deletions(-), 4944 modifications(!)

  ... about 300 lines were downsized.

- Remaining issue:
  * ACL_SELECT_FOR_UPDATE has same value with ACL_UPDATE, so SE-PostgreSQL
    checks db_table:{update} permission on SELECT ... FOR SHARE OF,
    instead of db_table:{lock} permission.
