Uh, no, the error would have to come from FETCH RELATIVE 0, and there's
a problem because no single piece of the code has all the facts needed
to know that an error should be thrown.  I don't currently see any
non-klugy way to detect that.

It might make sense to go with Simon's suggestion to just forbid
non-forwards fetch from a FOR UPDATE cursor (assuming that we agree he's
read the spec correctly to disallow that).  That would mask the problem
cases in a clean way, and we could fix them sometime later as an
enhancement, if anyone finds it worthwhile.
