Yes, I can confirm this behavior on CVS HEAD, and it is odd:
test=> CREATE SCHEMA internal;
test=> CREATE VIEW internal.all_objects AS SELECT 1;
test=> REVOKE ALL ON VIEW internal.all_objects FROM PUBLIC;
ERROR: syntax ERROR AT OR near "internal"
LINE 1: REVOKE ALL ON VIEW internal.all_objects FROM PUBLIC;
test=> REVOKE ALL ON TABLE internal.all_objects FROM PUBLIC;
Is there a downside to adding "VIEW" in parser/gram.y:privilege_target?
