Looking at discard all, I was a bit suprised that 'DISCARD PLANS;'
doesn't clear out cached stored procedures. To be honest, that's one
of the main reasons I'd see to use it. I thought there had been some
discussion in the archives related to invalidating stored procedure
plans due to catalog or other changes, I would have thought it'd be
possible to hook into that to do the same on a DISCARD PLANS;.

Thoughts? Is there an issue doing that? It certainly seems like it'd
be a lot better than what he current documentation requires:

When necessary, the cache can be flushed by starting a fresh database

Maybe we could use 'DISCARD PLPLANS;' or something, if people feel
there needs to be a seperate way to clear those.
