Ok, how about SPI_register_trigger_data(TriggerData *)?  Or any name
you prefer...  I didn't suggest something as specific as
SPI_register_transition_tables because think it's plausible that
someone might want to implement SQL standard REFERENCING OLD/NEW ROW
AS and make that work in all PLs too one day, and this would be the
place to do that.

See attached, which add adds the call to all four built-in PLs.  Thoughts?
