    Currently, we don't have ACL's on functions. But at least for
    the ones  called  by  ExecMakeFunctionResult(),  this  really
    makes  sense  as  soon  as  we implement a uid/euid model for
    function/view execution.

    The uid/euid for functions, triggers and views is already  on
    my  personal  TODO  and  I hope to make it for 6.4, so we can
    offer  view  and  function/trigger  creation  (restricted  to
    trusted languages) to ordinary users.

    When  adding  ACL's  to  functions,  I think the ACL's at all
    should be moved into a separate catalog, containing the  Oid,
    owner and the ACL.
