They were added fairly early on in WP 1.3, last summer, I'd say.  Quite 
a lot of plugin writers started writing plugins for WP 1.3 CVS code, so 
this shouldn't be anything new to them.

Alex, if you weren't able to put $wpdb->posts and the like into 
doublequoted strings, WordPress wouldn't get past the install phase.  
It's pretty much the standard way of doing it.  Your test environment 
must be screwy.
