Yeah, I already deleted the intoClause chunk from the patch.  I think
treating SELECT INTO as a utility statement is probably fine, at least
for now.

That's been an issue right along for cases such as EXPLAIN and EXECUTE,
I believe.  Perhaps the right thing is to consider such executor calls
as nested statements --- that is, the ProcessUtility hook ought to
bump the nesting depth too.
