I had thought it would be trivial to do ILIKE, but now I'm not sure how
to handle the multi-byte case. It isn't sufficient to wrap the
single-byte comparison arguments with tolower() is it??
btw, do the archives have a full discussion of the correct syntax for
this? I recall people asking for it, but since it is a non-standard
feature what implementation example should I follow? What alternatives
are there? Is "check the archives" sufficient to produce a complete
design discussion? What thread??
