computed field on a table

P: n/a
This is a feature of Interbase/Firebird. Is this planned for future
version of Postgres (I can always use a view for this though).

Use a trigger to keep a materialized version of the computed field up to
date, or use a view to compute the field dynamically. No other
mechanisms are planned.

TIP 2: you can get off all lists at once with the unregister command
(send "unregister YourEmailAddressHere" to ma*******@postgresql.org)

I would use a view which would keep the amount of accesses to the table
low as well.
