Yeah, I agree JD's solution is probably the simplest reasonable answer.

It's a bit brute-force, but so was the original coding.  Anybody see
a way to make it cleaner/shorter?

One thought is that the column cases should be phrased more like
        no privileges could be revoked for column "foo" of table "bar"
Check the messages associated with DROP cascading for the canonical
phrasing here, but I think that's what it is.
