That makes sense. I can't see how we would make LOCAL CHECK CONSTRAINTs
work with rules anyhow.
So that means WITH CHECK CONSTRAINT is going to end up executed in a
similar place to constraint evaluation on underlying tables.
That leaves me in a difficult position with MERGE though. MERGE does
something similar with conditional-WHEN clause evaluation, plus
transformation of the sub-statements is only sensible when we have
updatable views. :-(
