No submitted patch; no one working on it AFAIK; doesn't look like
something that could get done in the next three weeks.

Also not done, but if we are willing to accept a limited patch
(ie, not necessarily everything that SQL92 says you can do with
VALUES, but at least the INSERT case) I think it could get done.
I might even volunteer to do it ... but won't object if someone
else volunteers to.

I believe Jonah has given up on fixing the originally-submitted
patch, but he mentioned at the code sprint that non-recursive
WITH is potentially doable in time for 8.2.  Not sure if that's
a sufficiently important case to be worth doing.
