You should be able to remove CONVERT as a grammar keyword altogether

I wonderted a bit about that. I thought it might be better to leave it in case we wanted to put back "convert using" when we have better support for multiple encodings (and maybe when we understand better what it is actually supposed to do).

Well, we could always put it back when we need it --- in the meantime,
every extra keyword is some fractional drag on parsing performance.

In any case I think the remaining production is probably wrong because
it constrains the function to be in pg_catalog schema, when there is
no grammatical evidence that it should be special.

OK, fix committed doing this.
