It's gonna need some work yet. As things stand, the tuples are indeed
pipelined through, but the CteScan nodes *also* stash them aside into
tuplestores, just in case somebody demands a rescan. Fixing that will
require revisiting the exec flags (EXEC_FLAG_REWIND etc). We don't
currently distinguish "it's unlikely you'll have to rescan" from
"you're guaranteed not to have to rescan", but a CteScan that's covering
a ModifyTable has to know the latter to not have to keep hold of copies
of the RETURNING tuples.
It might be a small enough change to do after alpha starts, but I don't
have time for it right now.
