We're looking at ways to fix some bugs.  It's never been the case that
our first-resort response to a bug is "pull out features".

If I were prepared to say all that today, I would have just done it ;-)

The more I think about it, the more I think that two sets of function
names might not be such an awful idea.  next_value(), curr_value(), and
set_value() seem like they'd work well enough.  Then we'd just say that
nextval and friends are deprecated except when you need late binding,
and we'd be done.
