I think it's reasonable to document the behavior, especially seeing that
psql is at the intersection of traditionally-case-sensitive Unix and
traditionally-not-case-sensitive SQL.  It is not instantly obvious which
behavior should be expected.

I take no position on whether this is the best way to document it...
