Most people figured it was a improvment. It's configured per function
now, which wasn't the case before. I dont't think there was ever any
discussion about having a global switch.

If your function is already marked immutable or stable, then nothing changes for you. If you *did* call volatile functions inside your select, then you now get
consistens behaviour. Since you don't want your function to be evaluated in all
cases, I assume that it shouldn't be marked volatile in the first place.

I think a lot of people forget to mark their functions volatile/stable/immutable
correctly, or don't know about the implications of these flags.

Maybe there should be a guc force_explicit_sideeffeect_declaration (defaulting
to on) which makes specifying either volatile, stable or immutable mandatory.
Then people would (hopefully) read the relevant part of the docs before
creating a function, and probably get the declaration right in the first place.
