I thing so materialisation is more important than you thing. Without
materialisation I could use derived tables, but materialisation in
WITH statement is unique feature usefull for analytical queries. I am
sure, so materialisation should be one from possible strategies.
I like to see this feature in core, with/without materialisation is
usefull for recursive queries and I thing so materialisation should be
add in next months. I don't see it as mayor break. I prefere early
commit of this patch (with neccessary documentation), because there
will be some work that cannot be commited concurently - analytic
queries and my implementation of rollup and cube operator.
