Mmm... I don't think so. A mechanism for signaling when a resultset is
finished already exists, the client just has to "fetch until eof".
What Roman is missing (as I understand) is something to help telling
what kind of call syntax to use *beforehand*. As I explained, I think
it would be useful but I don't find it strictly needed as we already
can do without.
