Re: Foreign key constraint added to acc_trans

Hi David;

A lot of people use foreign key constraints in their production
databases only during the testing phase and then disable them when
they suffer performance problems.  I don't really have an issue if
people want to disable the foreign key constraints after the fact (it
is their risk), but I would rather take the approach of "locked down
by default."

Also, again, this is just a heads-up.  If people really are that
worried about performance they can always disable the constraint but
that isn't going to make it into our distribution :-)

Best Wishes,
Chris Travers

Its a choice between add FKs and accepting possible performance hits, or
not having them and risking data corruption. Guess which I would pick
every time.
