I think it'd be cleaner to use ResTarget for the namespaces, like
xml_attribute_el does, and split the names from actual exprs in the same
way.  So things like ExecInitExpr become simpler because you just
recurse to initialize the list, without having to examine each element
individually.  tabexprInitialize can just do forboth().

The main reason I don't like abusing NamedArgExpr is that the whole
comment that explains it becomes a lie.
