Unquoted identifiers are always smashed down to lowercase. Quoted
identifiers are taken verbatim, including case.
This is not a bug: it's documented in
http://www.postgresql.org/docs/8.1/interactive/sql-syntax.html#SQL-SYNTAX-IDENTIFIERS . Oracle has the same behavior, but uppercase unquoted identfiers. I seem to recall reading that the SQL spec requires that identifiers be treated as one or the other, but doesn't say which (upper or lower).
