Er ... don't use DISTINCT ON? It's not to be found anywhere in the
SQL92 specs, so if you want to run your app on a variety of DBMSes,
that's your only choice anyway.
If you are a heavy user of DISTINCT ON, I should think you'd gladly
accept a little conversion pain for the benefit of being able to do
DISTINCT ON multiple expressions, instead of only one unadorned
