JavaScript V8 Engine in PostgreSQL

Part of me loves this. The other part of me thinks this is a terrible idea because it opens the door for easy-to-code loop based DB operations instead of set based operations. If you care about performance, stay disciplined and don't go writing your updates with loops. Well placed case statements on set updates or selects will still get the job done much faster.
