Can someone tackles this and supply a patch?

> java.sql.ResultSet dr = connection.ExecSQL("select description from pg_description where objoid="+r.getInt(2));
> it should be
> java.sql.ResultSet dr = connection.ExecSQL("select obj_description("+r.getInt(2)+",'pg_class')");
> In getColumns, the change is a little more involved, because
> pg_attribute doesn't have an OID column anymore. The initial query
> can't fetch a.oid, but should fetch a.attrelid instead, and then the
> pg_description query should become
> java.sql.ResultSet dr = connection.ExecSQL("select col_description("+r.getInt(1)+","+r.getInt(5)+")");
> (col_description takes the table OID and the column's attnum).
> The reason this is more than a 3-line change is that it should be done
