The Pl/pgSQL compiler should be able to dive into SQL statements, hit
the catalog, and bounce a function because of invalid database object
references. Ideally this capability could be turned off on demand.
I am thankful that Oracle's PL/SQL compiler checks these things for me.
I don't remember the last time I intended to write code that referenced
something that did not exist in the database. I agree,though, that some
developers might rely on such a capability in some circumstances.
