Thanks for taking the time to review!

I see two columns that have extra underscores in them: "char8col___" and 
"char8forbitcol___".  Are these the columns you're referring to?  The first one 
was like that in the test before my patch--I don't know _why_ it was like that, 
but I didn't think it was something that needed to be changed.  The second one, 
which I added, has the extra underscores because I copied the first one and just 
added "forbitcol" to the name; I didn't think to remove to the extra underscores.

So my answer to your question is "Umm...don't know".  But then again, since it 
doesn't hurt to have the underscores there, I'm not sure if this is something 
that we should bother changing?  Underscores are a valid part of a column name, 
so their presence seems acceptable to me...*shrug*

If anyone believes that these column names _should_ be changed, then I can 
certainly go ahead and do so.  But personally, while they are a bit odd, I'm 
still okay with them being there...

Thanks again for the review!
