I have two points in a multipoint geometry which represent the start and end point of road segments that I need to extract the points back out of, but ST_PointN doesn't work for multipoints, nor can I convert the multipoint to a linestring with ST_MakeLine and use ST_PointN then on the resultant line (because it doesn't work on multipoint geometries either).
