Hello hackers,

In his blog post (What's new in SQL 2016)[
https://modern-sql.com/blog/2017-06/whats-new-in-sql-2016], Markus Winand
explained some of the changes added to SQL:2016. I spotted that Postgres
was behind other RDBMS on hyperbolic functions and log10 function.
The log10 function existed but under the name log(<value>).

The new functions can be called in a simple select statement :

select log10(100);
select sinh(0);
select cosh(0);
select tanh(0);

Even if Markus Winand had added hyperbolic functions in the paragraph
"Trigonometric and Logarithmic Functions", I didn't add hyperbolic function
with the trigonometric functions in the documentation, because hyperbolic
functions are not trigonometric functions.

I added regression tests for the new functions, but I didn't for log10
function, assuming that if log function worked, log10 will work too.

You'll find enclosed the first version of the patch that can build
successfully on my laptop against master. I'm open to any improvement.

Cheers,

Lætitia
