Hello.


Just my 2 cents, and not looking to the technical aspects:

setting up PSQL is the weakest point of PSQL as we have experienced ourself,
once it is running it is great.

I can imagine that a lot of people of stops after their first trials after
they have
experienced the troubles and performance of a standard set up.

This is ofcourse a lost user forever.

So anything that could be done to get an easier and BETTER setup would
strongly enhance PSQL.

My 2 cents.

Henk Sanders

That's been proposed and rejected before, too; the main problem being
that initdb is frequently a layer or two down from the user (eg,
executed by initscripts that can't pass extra arguments through, even
assuming they're being invoked by hand in the first place).

TIP 9: In versions below 8.0, the planner will ignore your desire to
       choose an index scan if your joining column's datatypes do not
       match
