#2101: SQL hooks for calling selectivity functions
 Reporter:  pramsey      |       Owner:  pramsey      
     Type:  enhancement  |      Status:  new          
 Priority:  medium       |   Milestone:  PostGIS 2.1.0
Component:  postgis      |     Version:  trunk

Comment(by robe):

 shouldn't get too attached to autocasting.  That is how all bad wars

 best to be explicit.

 _postgis_geometry_sel('mytable'::regclass,'mycol'::text,'LINESTRING(0 0,
 30 30)'::geometry);

  We've already got issue with raster with lazy casting and then adding a
 default arg screws up everything.
