Support for events is already pushed (albeit after 10.1.3).
Support for triggers will be pushed any day now (already reviewed and
approved, so there's no more work left on it). I suppose that stored
procedures and functions will follow soon.

This was a GSoC 2014 project that added support for these clauses to
*all* objects. It's just being pushed piecewise, object by object.

I don't understand what exactly missing feature that user had in mind.
It couldn't have been "CREATE OR REPLACE", this seems so minor.
Or was it?
