I don't disagree a bit with what you've said.

On the other hand, I think a developer shouldn't have to be told more than twice that:

can eat up a couple hundred gig of spool without blinking, but that
SELECT item FROM a.table GROUP BY item
goes by in the blink of an eye. You'd think that wouldn't be a major paradigm shift for them--but it is (okay, in one case I've been dwelling on lately). And it'd be even nicer to be heard the first time.

(This is an oversimplified example--the point being DISTINCT versus GROUP BY.)
