I'm pretty sure it does in the current versions of most other DBMSs.

Up to a point, perhaps.  Do you want to make assumptions about what
the maximum acceptable command length will be for other DBMSes?
It'd be hard enough being sure what to use for Postgres.


If we were going to allow it then I think we'd also need a param to specify either a max number of rows or a max statement size. IIRC, in MySQL at least, one of these is tunable for input.
