I saw that, but how is that consistent with other command-line tools?

Really? Pg_dump doesn't preserve case for table names:
pg_dump -t Test test
$ pg_dump -t Test test
pg_dump: No matching tables were found
$ pg_dump -t '"Test"' test
-- PostgreSQL database dump
and vacuumdb certainly does not:
vacuumdb --analyze --verbose --table 'foo(bar)' xyzzy
$ vacuumdb --analyze --verbose --table 'Test (x)' test
vacuumdb: vacuuming of table "Test (x)" in database "test" failed: ERROR: relation "test" does not exist
$ vacuumdb --analyze --verbose --table '"Test" (x)' test
INFO: vacuuming "public.Test"
INFO: "Test": found 0 removable, 0 nonremovable row versions in 0 out of 0 pages
Who does? reindexdb and clusterdb did before my patch, but that hardly
