I don't have a strong opinion about whether the variadic argument is
declared as an array or scalar, so I am posting my comments about this
version of the patch as well.
This version also has a problem when declaring two functions "foo(int)"
and "foo(variadic int)". In this version, the declaration is allowed
but the backend crashes when the function is called.
The variable "transform_variadic" should have some kind of comment. It
seems to be there to distinguish between when you're looking for a
candidate function for a function call, and when you're looking for a
candidate function for, e.g., CREATE FUNCTION. It's a little hard to
follow, and is probably the cause for the aformentioned crash.
Also, it doesn't seem to allow calls to a variadic function with zero
arguments, e.g. "mleast()". I think this should be allowed.
I suggest the following error message rewording:
"variadic argument isn't an array" should be something like: "variadic
argument must be an array".
