Yes it is, and I brought that up in the OP:

But since nobody arced up about it I thought I might as well move
things along and produce a patch.

Many of the functions provided by postgres are easy to write yourself.
 That doesn't mean they shouldn't be there.  After all, there is
*exactly* one way to do quote_qualified_ident.  Why require every DBA
who needs this functionality to go through the motions?

I'll admit that it's a minor improvement, but that seems reasonable
given it has a miniscule cost.
