This is not usual coding practice in Postgres, so far as I've noticed.
I prefer to avoid static locals because the fact that they *are* static
is easily missed. In particular it's way too easy to misread the
initialization as something that happens on every entry to the function,
rather than only once. So my opinion is that this change is bad style.
