I agree that performance isn't much of a concern, but code bloat and
inconsistency with other cases are valid concerns. That function does
not recurse into name lists in, for example, the A_Expr and FuncCall
Also, related to this complaint though not this patch, it's disturbing
that this oversight wasn't detected long ago. My first thought was to add
some conditionally-compiled debugging code that just performs a no-op
traverse of every raw parse tree produced by the grammar. However that
doesn't work because raw_expression_tree_walker doesn't promise to support
everything, only DML statements. Thoughts?
