Subject Passing context info to UDFs
Author Nando Dessena
I was wondering what would it take to be able to pass context
information (namely connection and transaction handle) to a UDF, in
order to:

- let UDF access data without the need for an additional connection,
which would be a very bad idea.
- commit/rollback work done by a UDF.

To me, it seems a really useful thing WRT extending the server, and I
was wondering if there would be any serious disadvantages to that.

Any comments?*

death. Java rules!" :-)
