Hmm, okay. But what we have here is not an empty tag, but a tag that is
completely missing. I don't think those two cases should be treated in
the same way ...

Thanks, I incorporated those changes. Here's v46. I rewrote the
documentation, and fixed a couple of incorrectly copied&pasted comments
in the new executor code; I think that one looks good. In the future we
could rewrite it to avoid the need for a tuplestore, but I think the
current approach is good enough for a pg10 implementation.

Barring serious problems, I intend to commit this later today.
