Most of the patch deals with the documentation, which is rather ugly

Hmm ... I find that argument much more convincing than any of the others ...

Jan, what do you think? You invented this command's syntax IIRC.

I did not. We inherited it from Postgres 4.2. If people think an ALSO keyword will clearify things, what about renaming the whole CREATE RULE into something along the line CREATE QUERY REWRITE MACRO?
