Come to think of it, I think that the motivation for the existing
recommendation was precisely to have a syntax that is visibly different
from the SQL-level SELECT INTO, with an eye to eventually allowing the
SQL construct to work too.  This may not be very important though,
considering that SELECT INTO is deprecated in favor of CREATE TABLE AS.
