We should do that sort of thing only as a very last resort.  It's
particularly bad when we cannot easily enforce that all references use
the pgxxx function.  pgpipe is manageable because there are very few
places that need to use it, but the same cannot be said of rename.

Personally I'd rather get rid of pgpipe as well ...
