One potential problem I see with the patch is that it opens lots of
savepoints but does not release any.  In this mode, given autocommit off
(and even without that), there's potential for lots and lots of
savepoints.  Not sure how to fix that given that you shouldn't release
user-specified savepoints ...

Also, you need to do something with \i.  I think the global variable
will be a less intrusive approach, at least while we are in beta.  When
8.1 development starts, you can submit a patch to clean up.
