 Replying to [comment:1 pramsey]:
 > Actually the behaviour is consistent: when passed a non-collection, the
 function just echoes it back.

 Not true. Was changed some time ago to always return the requested type:
 =# select ST_AsText(ST_CollectionExtract('POINT(0 0)', 2));
 (1 row)

 See #457

 It would be consistent to always return the MULTI* version of the
 requested type...
