It's the thing that holds the state of an executable command.  I was
going to call 'em cursors, but a cursor only works for a SELECT command,
so it didn't seem like the right word.  I seized on "portal" which is
the term already used internally in the backend.  If you've got a better
idea, let's hear it ...
