The problem is that the function may actually be a SRF so the JDBC driver
transforms to the "SELECT * FROM" form.  The JDBC driver doesn't want to
get into the business of trying to determine which function will actually
be called due to overloading complications, and prior to the introduction
of "void" it worked.  The plain select with a void returning function
seems more useful, but the JDBC driver has supported the SRF version for
some time now, so I'm worried about backwards compatibility.
