Yeah -- the syntax isn't great, but IMO it's more generally usable
than what you're proposing because it's a scalar returning function
not a table expression. Another point is that the proposed 'like'
syntax (which I still think is great, just maybe not for conversions
from json) seems wedded to record types. The hstore trick should be
able to take a foo, set it all up and return it. How would that
work with like?

that would be great IMO.
