I'm not sure that's so much cleaner than what's there.  It's relying on
SRF-in-SELECT-list, which is doable at the C level but it's deprecated;
plus the SRF has to return a record, which makes the notation a bit
klugy --- (element).whatever in the upper select-list, and the GROUP BY
probably won't work the way you show here, either.

Another big problem is that the count(distinct) is going to cause the
whole thing to have pretty awful performance.

Not sure about a better way though...
