----------------------------------------------------------------

This would be great.

Note that the SQL standard has a {{CONVERT}} function (see CALCITE-111) which 
has  a different purpose (it relates to character sets). Since it is specified 
without the "{fn ...}" syntax, they should be able to coexist.

> Both ODBC and JDBC spec mention a {{CONVERT}} scalar function, which is the 
> equivalent of the {{CAST}} function.
> In order for JDBC and ODBC drivers to expose support for this function, 
> calcite should support parsing it, and converting it into a {{CAST}} 
> expression (currently, it doesn't unlike some other scalar functions).
