This is what you get when you copy a proprietary, poorly specified interface.  
The to_char functions are supposed to be Oracle-compatible, so we need to 
check what Oracle does.  Whether that is useful in practice is a bit 

I'm beginning to think, if you want formatting functions that are more sane, 
stable, and standardized, export sprintf and strftime to PostgreSQL.
