Oh, I just realized... This may butt heads with the pg_native_binds option, 
which uses server-side bound parameters as well as the prepared statements 
(when it's off, it uses the DBI quoter, which is a little more flexible), so 
if you do end up patching this, you may need to be aware that depending on the 
situation, these options may need to be co-dependent. The majority of the 
relevant code is in lib/dbd/pg/statement.rb.

Thanks again,
