We haven't got one that will work from inside arbitrary functions ---
DefineSavepoint and friends don't get it done by themselves, but
expect you to call CommitTransactionCommand/StartTransactionCommand,
and those functions tend to pull the rug out from under the executor.
(I seem to recall trying to do it that way in the first attempt on
plpgsql, and running into all kinds of memory management issues.)

The existing PLs use BeginInternalSubTransaction,
ReleaseCurrentSubTransaction, RollbackAndReleaseCurrentSubTransaction,
but these are subset implementations only suited for
exception-block-structured code.
