The stuff is in nodes/outfuncs.c, and is used in EXPLAIN VERBOSE.  I
question whether your structures would actually be output as part of a

I hesitate to remove any of the outfuncs stuff.  It is very useful, and
if it is missing, things are harder to debug.  Adding the fields I did
helped solve several problems I had when testing subselects, and I know
Vadim uses that output too.  Shame it goes into the rule, but hard to
imagine why the rule would not need it, except for fields that are only
used by the parser, but I think we need to be complete.  A better
solution would be to allow rewrite rules to span multiple blocks, or a
least allow them to take the space of two blocks.
