I've been actually thinking for some time that we'd need such a function.
Right now the code computing that (which I call "edge linking") is buried
into the ST_AddEdgeModFace and ST_AddEdgeNewFaces functions.

The primitive block of such function could be GetNodeEdges:
That function does not make use of "edge linking" fields.
