I would argue the contrary.  If we put a CFI at the head of each node
execution function, then it's just boilerplate that you copy-and-paste
when you invent a new node type.  The way you've coded it here, it
seems to involve a lot of judgment calls.  That's very far from being
copy and paste, and the more different it looks from one node type
to another, the easier it will be to forget it.

It's certainly possible that there are long-running loops not involving
any ExecProcNode recursion at all, but that would be a bug independent
of this issue.  The CFI in ExecProcNode itself can be replaced exactly
either by asking all callers to do it, or by asking all callees to do it.
I think the latter is going to be more uniform and harder to screw up.
