Yes. If you notice all the other UPPER() usages, I changed them to
"UPPER(foo)" and "foo + 1".  This was to avoid needing an extra buffer like
CAP() used to need.  Since the global buffers went away, there were a lot
fewer buffers that were really needed.

CAP does that, but it modifies the string.
