I guess the $64 question is whether any frontends other than JDBC want
this behavior.  If it's JDBC-only then I'd certainly vote for making
JDBC handle it ... but as soon as we see several different frontends
implementing similar behavior, I'd say it makes sense to implement it
once in the backend.

So, what's the market?
