You can substitute ‘hello’, ‘World’, 5, and 6. But not 10.

I am substituting only string literals. So the query above will be transformed 

SELECT $1::CHAR(10) || $2, 5 + 6;

What's wrong with it?

Oh, well that leaves a lot of opportunities on the table, doesn’t it?

Well, actually my primary intention was not to make badly designed programs 
(not using prepared statements) work faster.
I wanted to address cases when it is not possible to use prepared statements.
If we want to substitute with parameters as much literals as possible, then 
parse+deparse tree seems to be the only reasonable approach.
I will try to implement it also, just to estimate parsing overhead.
