Views are parsed and compiled into blr when they are defined. The blr
refers to fields and tables by name, so on first reference the view is
further compiled - semantic analysis, I think - so that it references
internal metadata. So, for a shared server, the view undergoes that
level of analysis when the first client connects to a database and
references the view.
