Ticket #961 (closed defect: fixed)
Reduce number of functions by making many have default args
|Reported by:||robe||Owned by:||robe|
I've already done this with ST_AsX3D. I'd like to conquer all the output functions (adding as Paul suggested to the upgrade scripts -- a drop clause).
But since we don't have an upgrade script for pre-PostGIS 2.0, I suppose this would prove difficult.
I could throw it in the uninstall_legacy.sql I am working on which I think we will require people to run anyway to get rid of all those legacy functions that get restored when they restore their backup on top of a pristine PostGIS 2.0 install.
One I've been really eying is that ST_AsGML which has 15 (count 15 permutations). That should reduce us down to about 4 or 5 for that one.
