Since month is already a 'date', applying date() to it is pretty pointless.
I don't really know why we have date(date) defined at all, but we do,
and it's defined as an SQL-language function --- which indexes don't
support at the moment. Thus the error message.
There are a fair number of no-op functions in pg_proc that are defined
as SQL "SELECT $1". We could probably afford to lose 'em all, and let
the parser treat these things as implicit type conversions instead...
