#332: WKT geometry tag match and mismatch

Changes (by pramsey):

  * milestone:  => PostGIS 1.5.0


 The behavior comes from here


 The intent to is to only allow true OGC WKT in via the FromText()
 function, even though other forms of text geometry (hex-encoded strings,
 EWKT that starts with 'SRID=') can be capably parsed by the input parser.
 This little roadblock seems to violate the "be liberal in what you accept"
 precept. I'm more inclined to remove it than to patch it up for case
 sensitivity. Other developer thoughts?
