My first reaction when I read this was "surely the implementation of the
API is not behaving correctly"; but then I looked at what the
specification actually says, and indeed, there is no requirement that
the order of the tuples in the description sequence match the order of
the columns in the result set. Regardless of the merits of Vernon's
proposal (and I think his arguments have some validity), this seems like
a hole in the specification which should be addressed.
