That turned out to be a bit more work than I thought, mainly because
there were EnterpriseDB and Greenplum keywords included in the pgadmin
list - which was only documented in one of the two places where they
occurred :-)

Anyway, attached is a patch that I believe does this right. If you
prefer an easier view, see

Does this look ok?

It does move the keyword definitions out of the header and into
keywords.cpp - but they aren't used anywhere.. So in general, I'm
fairly confident with it...
