hm, maybe it's just the way we used it in core that's wrong?  I dunno.

I can't really explain it because the expansion looks fine and
is the same as the one in sql-de-lite.

Anyway, good to know that it's not completely broken.

We can keep a long deprecation period.  This patch just removes usages
in core and updates the macro so we can get rid of the obsolete alias.
