Were all twenty of them exactly alike?  Were they identical to Andres'
several dozen attempts?

The problem I've got with this proposal is that by the time you get to
a function that could satisfy every possible use-case, you do not have
something that is easier to use than "write your own function that
addresses just your use-case".

The only complaint I've seen in this thread that seems like a valid
deficiency is that RAISE can't deal with treating the error severity level
as a variable.  But surely we should address that as a new RAISE feature,
not by inventing a SQL wrapper that will need to reproduce every existing
RAISE feature before it can think about solving anything new.
