I think to_char() addresses this in 7.0, although it doesn't use
the strftime formatting conventions (blame Oracle for that ;-)).
See http://www.postgresql.org/docs/postgres/functions2569.htm

What?

regression=# select 'a'::text || 'b'::text || 'c'::text;
 ?column?
----------
 abc
(1 row)

6.5.3 behaves the same ...
