Seriously speaking, they should appear in v2.0. I had them generally working
in my private tree some months ago, but since their implementation requires
an ODS change, it was deferred till the better times. The SQL standard
declares them pretty clearly to follow, but they have a parsing conflict
with UDFs (some kind of precedence must be chosen to solve it).
