Actually, we're talking at cross-purposes here. The tag I'm talking
about is the one generated via format_function_signature, and the
problem with what I had in mind is that it isn't done yet at the point
where the sort runs.

You could probably make it work more safely if you applied
getFormattedTypeName() and then compared the string names.
That would be rather expensive :-( but in most databases
this should happen few enough times so it wouldn't be a problem.
[ thinks for a bit ... ] Although getFormattedTypeName depends on
the current search_path, so that might be a bit of an issue for
stability as well. I guess we could force a standardized path,
perhaps pg_catalog only, before sorting.
