If we did something on the server-side, stored procedures would be
handled just like everything else, so stored procedures would suffer
or be unaffected to precisely the same extent as anything else.
However, Tom proposed doing the case-remapping on the client side,
which would cause the behavior to be one thing for queries submitted
directly from the client and something else for queries that appear
inside PL code.
