The majority of utility commands don't work in plpgsql functions,
because no one had gotten 'round to writing querytree copy routines
for them.  Ian Turner finally did all the gruntwork for that a few
weeks ago, so this does work in current sources and will be in 7.1.

I believe you could make this work in 7.0 by using an SQL function
instead of plpgsql, if that helps any...
