As to why it works in 8.4 vs 8.3
"Support set-returning functions in SELECT result lists even for functions that
return their result via a tuplestore (Tom)
In particular, this means that functions written in PL/pgSQL and other PL
languages can now be called this way.'
In 8.3- I believe you could only call it as
SELECT * from date_range (asdate, afdate)::date AS asdate;
