As both Peter and Sinisa have pointed out to me, this particular
option is for 3.23 compatibility, not ANSI compatibility.  And
they were both nice enough not to point out dumb my question was!

In retrospect, the manual is pretty clear that this option pertains
to 3.23 compatibiltiy.  I read that, but for some reason completely
failed to grasp it.  Guess I was trying too hard to draw the connection
between --ansi and --sql_mode.
