Hi Greg,

Thanks for the review.  I've realized that I will not get a chance to
incorporate these changes during this commitfest due to work and
travel schedules, so I have changed it to "Returned with Feedback" and
will update it for the next commitfest.

One more thought I had, would it make sense to change this from the
creation of a PL/pgSQL permanent function to instead use the recently
added DO anonymous block syntax?  I think that would be somewhat
cleaner about leaving cruft behind in the database.  But it would
increase the overhead of each outer execution, and would also mean
that it would not be backwards compatible to run against servers
before 9.0
