Recursive SQL, soon also in PostgreSQL

SQL:1999-style recursive SQL has been added to the development version of PostgreSQL. Consequently, soon, three DBMSes (DB2, MSSQL, PostgreSQL) will be supporting the "WITH [RECURSIVE]" construct. Recursive SQL is becoming mainstream. (Oracle also has recursive SQL, but implemented in a limited and non-standard way.)
