I have tried to solve this issue. Please see the attached patch.
With this patch, any expression is allowed in the return statement. For any
invalid expression an error is generated without doing any special handling.
When a row expression is used in the return statement then the resultant
tuple will have rowtype in a single column that needed to be extracted.
Hence I have handled that case in exec_stmt_return().
