Well, I think its use for timestamp/interval/casting functions alone
covers a pretty substantial set of common user actions. Frankly, the
case of not re-evaluating now() alone would be a significant real-life
If I understand the limitations correctly, though, what this would do is
cause functions to perform substantially differently if called with
expressions as arguments instead of text constants, no? Seems like that
would lead to some user confusion. Although, with stuff like now(), we
already have that.
