Hm.  It is not particularly useful in plpgsql at the moment, because of
the lack of any way to reference columns dynamically.  So that's
probably why it's not there in plpgsql, and then the other languages
copied that decision even though they can do dynamic references.

You'd have to work out appropriate datastructure idioms for the other
languages, which might not be obvious at first glance.

It doesn't seem very high priority to me, because no one's yet asked for
it ...

Works for me.
