Greate job. But I'm worried about add_missing_from enabled. See:

euler=# delete from t3 using t1 where b > 500;
euler=# select * from t3;
 x | y 
(0 rows)

In this case, I 'forget' to do the join and it delete all rows from t3.
I know that user needs to pay attention, but ... What about default
add_missing_from to off?

The other case is:

euler=# select * from t1 where t1.a = t3.x;
NOTICE:  adding missing FROM-clause entry for table "t3"
NOTICE:  adding missing FROM-clause entry for table "t3"
 a | b  
 5 | 10
(1 row)

euler=# delete from t1 where t1.a = t3.x;

I think we need at least a NOTICE here. Of course it could be extended
to UPDATE too.

BTW, what about regression tests for UPDATE ... FROM?

PS> all examples are extracted from regression database.
