Much of the postgresql docs talks about ISO-8601 formats, so I would think
of the patch more as a standards-based improvemnt for the current interval 
shortand.  

For example, where today postgresql accepts "1Y1M" as '1 year 1 minute',
with the patch, the ISO-8601-standard "P1Y1M" would mean '1 year 1 month'.

I would be happy to implement the SQL-standard-intervals as well if 
someone can point me to that spec.  It's just that the system I worked
with happend to exchange data with ISO8601 time intervals.
