We could start by issuing a NOTICE/WARNING as a step towards the strict
compliance and provide a GUC variable for those who are unable to cope
even with the warning.

The warning could be issued at two places - 

1. ( more annoying ) issue it at cursor creation time when a plan is
chosen that can't be fetched backwards.

2. like your #2, but just give a warning and then run the underlying
query _again_, this toime with materialize on top and also do a Move to
reposition the cursor. This will probably not work correctly for all
tranasaction isolation levels though but it will penalize only these
cases that absolutely need it. The penalty will of course be heavier ;(
