Which other ones? I checked our archives and found that when we were
discussing adding ILIKE, it was claimed that Oracle had it. But I can't
find anything on the net to verify that claim. I did find that mSQL
(not MySQL) had it, as far back as 1996. Nothing else seems to --- but
Google did provide a lot of hits on pages saying that ILIKE is a mighty
handy Postgres-ism ;-)

My feeling too. Whatever you may think of its usefulness, it's been a
documented feature since 7.1. It's a bit late to reconsider.
