Mark, you are quite correct.
I wrote that from memory; I should have consulted my archives.
Although, messages that old are from the days when I still used
Netscape Communicator, so I have to go hand search text files. At
that time I was using AOLserver 2.1 on Linux, and was testing 2.2 with
PostgreSQL. Eric sent me the beta, which enabled the
extended_table_info stuff (the ad hoc query system of AOLserver 2.x is
still one of the nicest ad hoc systems around).
