Ahhh Hiroshi is talkign formt he aspect of ODBC?  Well, thats an ODBC 
issue, should be handled by the ODBC driver.  Compliance with ODBC spec 
(or non-compliance) is not the issue of PostgreSQL proper.  Thats the 
issue of the ODBC driver and it's maintainers (sorry if I'm sounding 
like a bastard but heh).

If we start catering to all the different driver layers then we'll end 
up with a huge mess.  What we're 'catering' to is the SQLxx specs, and 
the expectations of a user when running and developing programs, am I right?
