This arose because Neil and I were having a private conversation where
psql variables were involved. A script was not behaving correctly because
I assumed the variables were case insensitive. I'm not sure why -- perhaps
because SQL is case insensitive. I thought I'd send in the note so that no
one else could make the mistake.
