This is a very important point, which I'd like to see more
fully explored. Some of the eos drafts list specific problems
with the existing protocol, but I don't think I've seen anything
about actual functional requirements from applications.
You know, something like
- Retrieve an entire table
- Retrieve a particular row
- Set a value or values in a particular row
I suspect some you wouldn't see are
- Set values in multiple rows concurrently
- Retrieve the lexi-next instance of anything
(I've taken Kristine's statement out of context, since she
was specifically addressing OID compression. Sorry...)
