I've applied the regression tests (with a few additions), but I'm
feeling dissatisfied with this approach to documenting VALUES.
It seems to be mostly missing the point about VALUES being usable
whereever SELECT is.  I'm not at all sure what I'd do instead though.
Should we give VALUES its own reference page?  That doesn't quite
seem helpful either.  cc'ing to pgsql-docs for ideas.
