Can one of you gurus clarify this?

  Identifier Arguments

  If a string in an identifier argument is quoted, the driver removes
  leading and trailing blanks and treats literally the string within the
  quotation marks. [..]

  Although identifiers containing special characters must be quoted
  in SQL statements, they must not be quoted when passed as catalog
  function arguments, because quote characters passed to catalog functions
  are interpreted literally.


So, does the driver use the string within the quotes, or treat the
quotes literally?  I'm confused.
