Egad :-(. All of a sudden I don't feel so bad about WITH becoming
a reserved word in 8.4. At least we'll throw a syntax error for this
bit of silliness, instead of silently doing something that MSSQL
users won't expect.
Nonetheless, it was royally stupid of MS to adopt an extension
syntax that looks exactly like a table alias to a parser that
doesn't think that WITH is reserved.
