Please find attached WIP patch for BeginScan.  Postgresql_fdw has been
changed to use server-side cursor for sample.  It's DECLAREd with HOLD
option to avoid transaction management, though.

Other changes since 20101025 patch are:

  - Some document fixes.
  - Don't call ConnectServer from ExecInitForeignScan. Instead,
    postgresql_fdw calls it from pgOpen().  This change is only trial
    and would be removed later.
  - Add "schema" column to output of \det psql command.
  - New \dE psql command shows list of foreign tables in \d format.
  - \d+ <foreign table> psql command shows per-column options.

If the changes (at least adding BeginScan) are OK, I'll clean the
patch up and post it soon.
