I have a 16K lines long real XML 6.MB. Probably we would not to append it
to regress tests.

It is really fast - original customer implementation 20min, nested our
xpath implementation 10 sec, PLPython xml reader 5 sec, xmltable 400ms

I have a plan to create tests based on pg_proc and CTE - if all works, then
the query must be empty

with x as (select proname, proowner, procost, pronargs,
array_to_string(proargnames,',') as proargnames,
array_to_string(proargtypes,',') as proargtypes from pg_proc), y as (select
xmlelement(name proc, xmlforest(proname, proowner, procost, pronargs,
proargnames, proargtypes)) as proc from x), z as (select xmltable.* from y,
lateral xmltable('/proc' passing proc columns proname name, proowner oid,
procost float, pronargs int, proargnames text, proargtypes text)) select *
from z except select * from x;
