After sleeping on it, I don't think we need to make that decision here
though.  I think it's better to just move the tuplestores into
ModifyTableState so that each embedded DML statement has its own, and
have ModifyTable pass them to the trigger code explicitly.  I think
I'd like to do that via the TransitionCaptureState object that I
proposed elsewhere, but I'll hold off on doing anything until I hear
from interested committers on which way we're going here, time being

Call me an anti-globalisation (of variables) protestor.
