You folks have commit privs, so please settle on something.
Here's $.01 worth:
It ought to be pretty clear in each example that the stuff between the
$'s can be varied.
Examples are in distressingly short and cloudy supply across
PostgreSQL docs. This appears to reflect the Greek tradition of
inquiry, as opposed (in this case) to the Babylonian one Richard
Feynman advocated, cf. <http://www.jefallbright.net/node/view/2062>.
I am doing what I can to correct this deficiency, and encourage others
to join me in this effort.
OK, that's my $.02 :)
