It seems like there's some remaining indecision between "make it look
like the options in EXPLAIN, VACUUM, etc" and "make it look like the
WITH options found in some other statements".  I do not have a strong
opinion which one to do, but I'd definitely say that you should use WITH
in the latter case but not in the former.  I think this mostly boils down
to whether to use "=" or not; you've got "not" in the proposal, which
means you are following the EXPLAIN precedent and should not use WITH.

I'm okay with the other specifics mentioned.

                        regards, tom lane
