This is the "explosion" in length due to the column aliases now
being inserted into the rule, apparently.   The limit on views now
is much more tied to the number of columns in the referenced table(s)
than on the actual complexity of the view's definition per se.

lztext is doing a GREAT job of sweeping this problem under the rug,
so to speak, but it's still there...
