Message Frank,
   We've not applied your patch - we just couldn't. The backend was (and
really still is) changing too quickly to have to update two.

However, I *think* most of the noise (the capitalization part) are
checked in now.

It also appears that the "on(something)" syntax that caused so many
duplicate SQL strings is not required. Let me test that tonight, and if
postgres is happy with it we should be able to share all the SQL strings
between databases.
