I can't agree with doing this.  MINUS is not a reserved word according
to SQL99, so supporting Oracle's syntax reduces our spec compatibility
by a visible amount.  And for what?  The behavior is *exactly* the same,
and all recent versions of Oracle accept the SQL-standard spelling

I counsel telling your customer to fix his application.  A quick
s/MINUS/EXCEPT/g on his part won't cost anything.

                        regards, tom lane
