Are we really sure that this isn't a solution in search of a problem?

The need for value-per-call is real (examples mentioned down-thread) and was anticipated from day one of the SRF implementation (in fact the first patch I wrote was value-per-call, not materialize). But when we realized that value-per-call was not going to work very well for any PL *except* C-functions, we switched to SFRM_Materialize as the only supported mode, with SFRM_ValuePerCall left as a to-be-coded-later option (see SetFunctionReturnMode in execnodes.h).

Personally I think it is worth having SFRM_ValuePerCall even if only C functions can make use of it.

Yeah, makes plenty of sense for C funcs. I don't think there's an argument about that. But for that we don't need any threading infrastructure.
