We discussed it, but we certainly didn't agree on that point.

Besides, I fail to see how speeding up the grid and allowing copy/paste
to be more flexible can possibly cause you any problems with checking
query results and timing? The original argument was about 2 things:

1) Editting in the grid. Well, that's not gonna happen as we have a
specialised tool for that.

2) Using a cursor based query to allow querying of very large data sets.
Yes, I can see how that would prevent you (and others) from using the
query tool in certain use cases, so I would definitely not advocate such
a change *unless* it could be an option that unless selected did not
change the current behaviour.

I haven't forgotten, but I would ask you not to forget that pgAdmin is a
community project written for general use and we shall not avoid
implementing features that the community might want just because any one
of us might not use them.

That does not mean we should break things for existing use cases though.

Regards, Dave.
