Based on Tom's objections, another approach is presented in
rls-9.4-upd-sb-views-v5 on  g...@github.com:ringerc/postgres.git . The
Query node is used to record the recursive expansion parent list
instead, and copying is avoided.

However, I've separately tracked down the cause of the test failures like:

ERROR:  could not open file "base/16384/30135": No such file or directory

This occurs where a row-security qual is declared to use a view.
Row-security quals get stored without rewriting (which is necessary, see
below). The qual is injected into securityQuals and expanded, but *not
rewritten*. So the executor sees an unexpected view in the tree.

Because a view RTE has its relid field set to the view's oid, this
doesn't get picked up until we try to actually scan the view relation in
the executor.

(I'd like to add Asserts to make the executor fail a bit more
informatively when you try to scan a view, but that's separate.)

So, that's clearly broken. There are really two possible solutions:

1. Try (again) to do row-security in the rewriter. This was previously
impossible because of the definition of row-security behaviour around
inheritance, but with the simplified inheritance model now proposed I
think it's possible.

2. Invoke RewriteQuery from within expand_security_quals, rewriting the
query after security qual expansion. This is only needed for
row-security; for updatable s.b. views rewriting has happened with
recursion into securityQuals during the original rewrite pass.

I suspect that (2) will result in a resounding "yuck".

So I have to see if I can now turn around *again* and plug row-security
into the rewriter after all.  That's a pretty frustrating thing to
discover in mid-late CF4.
