I have a question or suggestion.
If I have missed some functionality please tell me. 
The thing is I have often needed information about from which points the distance in st_distance is calculated.
I mean, somewhere in the function the information have to be. Would it be possible to build a new function which 
returned the distance, startpoint, endpoint as array or something like that.
Am I right about that this functionality is missing and
am I right about that the points have to be identified somewhere in the function and that it ought to be possible to present them in a function.
If I'm right so far I would like to come this as a suggestion.
I also have to thank you all for postgis. 
It has been a very nice experience to start handling the gis analysing and processing in database-environment.
My next step is to try to manage any of the procedural languages. Then I guess I can do just anything with all the points and polygons out there :-).
