I think the ideal way to get pipelined execution will be to detect the
cases where it's safe, ie, no deletes, inserts, or updates, no
recursive calls, and only one call site, and inline the sql directly
into the callsite. Actually we could do that even if there are two
callsites if there are no volatile functions but estimating whether
that would be a win or a loss would be hard.
