Ok, I see what you're looking at. However, the book states the escapes
should only be supported when the underlying DBMS supports them and that
escape syntaxes must be included for stored procedures etc where
appropriate. Does PostgreSQL support stored procedures using a stored
procedures escape syntax? If yes, we should return yes, if no, we should
return no until that functionality is added. Both cases are allowed,
AFAICS. The book doesn't mention that drivers should always return true
for this procedure.

Actually, I'm not sure what I was saying anymore .. :P never mind this
statement until I figure it out myself :)
