Right. Better I think is to only allow a missing RETURN expression for
functions declared to return void anyway; that catches the mistake at
compile-time. I've implemented this behavior in the revised patch. The
error message in this scenario is still a little poor:
create function missing_return_expr() returns int as $$
end;$$ language plpgsql;
ERROR: syntax error at end of input at character 8
CONTEXT: SQL statement in PL/PgSQL function "missing_return_expr" near
LINE 1: SELECT
Is it worth putting in a special-case to look for an unexpected ';' in
either the RETURN production or read_sql_construct() ?

Sorry, both of these result from sloppiness on my part: I think the code
was originally correct, but I tried to refactor some of the more complex
parts of the FOR statement production into a separate function, and
eventually wasn't able to (because of the `forvariable' union member).
When I gave up and reverted the code, I obviously wasn't careful enough.
Attached is a revised patch.
