[ shrug... ]  Well, I won't resist this hard as long as it's done
competently, which to me means "the subquery name doesn't conflict with
anything else".  Not "it doesn't conflict unless you're unlucky enough
to have used the same name elsewhere".  There are a couple ways we could
achieve that result, but the submitted patch fails to.

(Or, in words of one syllable: if I thought this way was okay, I would
have done it like that back in 2000.)
