I doubt it.  The parameters that can be specified in WITH never did
anything before 7.0 (well, I suppose some of them did back when the
"expensive functions" optimization code worked).  The only one that
does anything useful now is ISCACHABLE (permits reduction of function
during constant-folding), and that functionality is new in 7.0.
