Depends on what the intended use of the view is, I suppose --- but I
should think that drivers would tend to just look at the statement name
to decide if it's something they sent, rather than comparing the text
of the body.  Showing a reverse-compiled version would be more robust
in the face of cases like a subsequent change of schema search path,
RENAME commands, etc.

Also, while I have not looked at the patch to see where it's getting
the "original text" from, I'll bet lunch that it's wrong.  The structure
of the parser doesn't permit easy extraction of the original text
corresponding to just one SQL command.
