            Attached 10th version of the jsonpath patches.

            1. Fixed error handling in arithmetic operators.

                Now run-time errors in arithmetic operators are
            catched (added
                PG_TRY/PG_CATCH around operator's functions calls) and
            converted into
                Unknown values in predicates as it is required by the
            standard:

        I think we really need to rename PG_TRY and PG_CATCH or
        rethink this
        whole interface so that people stop thinking they can use it to
        prevent errors from being thrown.


    I understand that it is unsafe to call arbitrary function inside
    PG_TRY without
    rethrowing of caught errors in PG_CATCH, but in jsonpath only the
    following
    numeric and datetime functions with known behavior are called
    inside PG_TRY
    and only errors of category ERRCODE_DATA_EXCEPTION are caught:

    numeric_add()
    numeric_mul()
    numeric_div()
    numeric_mod()
    numeric_float8()
    float8in()
    float8_numeric()
    to_datetime()


That seems like a quite limited list of functions. What about reworking them providing a way of calling them without risk of exception?  For example, we can
have numeric_add_internal() function which fill given data structure with
error information instead of throwing the error. numeric_add() would be a
wrapper over numeric_add_internal(), which throws an error if corresponding data structure is filled.  In jsonpath we can call numeric_add_internal() and interpret errors in another way.  That seems to be better than use of PG_TRY
and PG_CATCH.

Attached 12th version of jsonpath patches.

I added the 7th patch where the following functions were extracted for
safe error handling in jsonpath:

numeric_add_internal()
numeric_sub_internal()
numeric_mul_internal()
numeric_div_internal()
numeric_mod_internal()
float8_numeric_internal()
numeric_float8_internal()
float8in_internal()

Errors are passed to caller with new ereport_safe() macro when
ErrorData **edata is not NULL:

+#define ereport_safe(edata, elevel, rest) \
+    do { \
+        if (edata) { \
+            errstart(elevel, __FILE__, __LINE__, PG_FUNCNAME_MACRO, 
TEXTDOMAIN); \
+            (rest); \
+            *(edata) = CopyErrorData(); \
+            FlushErrorState(); \
+        } else { \
+            ereport(elevel, rest); \
+        } \
+    } while (0)


But to_datetime() is still called in jsonpath inside PG_TRY/PG_CATCH block
because it needs too deep error propagation.
