It would be hard to reject at the grammar level, and not very friendly either because you'd only get "syntax error".

I do not remember ever seeing a question that boiled down to somebody being confused by this. regards, tom lane -- Sent via pgsql-hackers mailing list (firstname.lastname@example.org) To make changes to your subscription: http://www.postgresql.org/mailpref/pgsql-hackers
