Unless there have been recent changes which I missed, ValuePerCall SRFs
are still run to completion in one go, when executed in the FROM clause,
but they project one-row-at-a-time in the target list. If your SRF
returns many-many rows, the problem with the former case is that the
entire thing has to be materialized in memory.
