In SQL99 the spec you referred to seems the ii) of b) which
begins with the word *Otherwise*. I see the following before it.

    a) If K is greater than 0 (zero) and not greater than N, then CR
       is positioned on the K-th row of Tt and the corresponding row
       of T. That row becomes the current row of CR.

Then I'm also suspicious if MOVE LAST should mean MOVE ALL.

I'm suspicios if we should implement scrollable cursors
with the combination of the current MOVE and FETCH implemen-
tation. For example the backwards FETCH operation for group
nodes isn't implemented properly yet(maybe). Should we fix
it or take another way ?
