Yes using quote identifier etc. 

I just rewrote my logic to go by the resulting table name instead of the
remote data source name and that seems to do the trick.

So I now write:

    LIMIT TO(orders, products)
    FROM SERVER northwind INTO northwind;

But with the laundering options off, I would do this:

    LIMIT TO("Orders", "Products")
    FROM SERVER northwind INTO northwind  OPTIONS(launder_table_names
'false', launder_column_names 'false') ;

So I am guessing you guys are filtering the list so that it works for all
FDWs even if the FDW author doesn't directly handle LIMIT / EXCEPT clause?
But not sure where that is being done.

So instead of doing this check in my code (which is what I was doing)

Relname = layer_name    (where in my case layer_name is the remote
datasource which can be pretty crazy for spatial data like web service
layers )

I'm doing this

Relname = table_name 

In the case where laundering is on which is the default  table_name !=
layer_name.  In case where user chooses to preserve layer name then
table_name == layer_name
