You wouldn't want to do that.  plpgsql is opaque to the planner.  For
things such as ST_Intersects, ST_DWithin, ST_Within and all those
automagically indexed functions, they will become automagically stupid.

Are we planning some time in the future to start throwing NOTICEs / 
ERRORs on deprecated function use?  If so, I would think the easiest way

to do this would be through the simple wrappers we have now (though 
we'll have to convert the SQL wrappers to plpgsql wrappers).
