Josh, you don't know what you're talking about.  The backend's
capabilities for this have not moved an inch since 8.1 (transient bugs
in its error checking do not represent an advance in capability),
and furthermore I'm not seeing anyplace in the SQL spec that suggests
the nullable side of an outer join should be updatable.
