We don't need to change it and break backwards-compatibilty, but we could
easily add in a synonym and deprecate spi_*. I prefer sql() or exec(),
although the latter is a little to close to "EXECUTE". Maybe do() in
the spirit of DBI (although it returns result sets, so that could be
potentially confusing). Other ideas? I'm assuming this is a 8.2 thing,
so we have plenty of time. :)
