I made a new version of the patch. I added tests and changes to the
docs and made sure various other aspects of this change for as well. I
think this now makes temporary materialized views fully implemented
and that in my view patch is complete. If there is anything else to
add, please let me know, I do not yet have much experience
contributing here. What are next steps? Do I just wait for it to be
included into Commitfest? Do I add it there myself?
