Uggh, what a mess.  How about passing an additional boolean
"is_returning" to deparseTargetList()?   If false, then
deparseTargetList() behaves as now.  If false, then
deparseTargetList() doesn't append anything at all if there are no
columns to return, instead of (as at present) adding NULL.  On the
other hand, if there are columns to return, then it appends "
RETURNING " before the first column.  Then, deparseReturningList could
skip adding RETURNING itself, and just pass true to
deparseTargetList().  The advantage of this approach is that we don't
end up with two copies of the code that have to stay synchronized -
the decision is made inside deparseTargetList(), and
deparseReturningList() accepts the results.
