That is *not* what was suggested, and it doesn't seem very useful.  The
problem really comes when one uses a temp table in autocommit mode, not
at creation time.

The problem with the original suggestion is that the backend can't do it
because AUTOCOMMIT is a notion that exists only in the client-side code.
And the client can't do it very well because it'd have to parse SQL
commands, and even with that it wouldn't see CREATE TEMP TABLE commands
issued inside functions.
