I took a brief look at this.  Changing that representation seems like
it'd be a fairly simple exercise, but I don't want to get into doing it
before 8.3 beta, and it'd be too invasive for a back-patch anyway.  What
I propose for the moment is to replace the Assert with a plain elog:

        if (!targetlist)
                elog(ERROR, "invalid use of *");
