It looks like plperl_spi_execute_fetch_result only expects to find
tuples returned if the status is SPI_OK_SELECT.  pltcl and plpython
have likely got similar issues.

This reminds me of a consideration I had been intending to bring up on
the mailing lists: what exactly do we want to do with the SPI API for
RETURNING queries?  The current behavior is that it still returns
SPI_OK_INSERT and so on, but also creates a SPI_tuptable.  Is this
what we want?  Perhaps we should invent additional return codes

Another issue I noted in that same area is that spi.c does not set
SPI_processed for a utility statement, even if the utility statement
returns tuples.  Is this a bug, or should we leave it alone?

                        regards, tom lane
