To me this (and a lot of the other code) hints quite strongly that
expression evalution is the wrong approach to implementing this.  What
you're essentially doing is building a vulcano style scan node.  Even if
we can this, we shouldn't double down on the bad decision to have these
magic expressions that return multiple rows.  There's historical reason
for tSRFs, but we shouldn't add more weirdness like this.
