[ic] PostgreSQL 8.3 incompatibility

Interchange users,

In PostgreSQL 8.3 many implicit casts were removed, some of which 
Interchange relied on. By default, the Standard demo and some Interchange 
core SQL does not work with PostgreSQL 8.3.

We expect to work around this in a future version of Interchange, but at 
the moment the easiest way to get things working is to manually put back 
the removed casts, as Peter Eisentraut describes here:


Running his pg83-implicit-casts.sql script fixes the known problems with 
the Standard demo.

This issue affects all versions of Interchange, but does not affect 
earlier versions of PostgreSQL.
