Simple counter for batch operations

Hello I am working with large transformations now. It is some like:
CREATE TABLE source_table(..);
CREATE TABLE destination_table(..);

/* transformation function */
CREATE OR REPLACE FUNCTION to_destination_table(source_table) RETURNS RECORD AS $$ ...

/* transformation */
INSERT INTO destination_table
   SELECT (r).*
  FROM (SELECT to_destionation_table(_source) r
           FROM source _source) x
The batch operation is relative long. so I had to wrote simple counter. It is simple function, that counts a call and returns input value without any change. My function has a three parameters, first is a value for forwarding, second is a frequency of notification, and third parameter specifies a printing input value:
nic=# select sum(counter(v, 20, false)) from generate_series(1,100) g(v);
NOTICE:  processed 20 rows
NOTICE:  processed 40 rows
NOTICE:  processed 60 rows
NOTICE:  processed 80 rows
NOTICE:  processed 100 rows
(1 row)

nic=# select sum(counter(v, 20, true)) from generate_series(1,100) g(v);
NOTICE:  processed 20 rows, current value is '20'
NOTICE:  processed 40 rows, current value is '40'
NOTICE:  processed 60 rows, current value is '60'
NOTICE:  processed 80 rows, current value is '80'
NOTICE:  processed 100 rows, current value is '100'
(1 row)
This function is very simple - see source code:
#include "funcapi.h"
#include "utils/lsyscache.h"


Datum pst_counter(PG_FUNCTION_ARGS);

typedef struct
 long int iterations;
 int freq;
 Oid  typoutput;
} counter_cache;

 * raise notice every n call,
 * returns input without change
 Datum value = PG_GETARG_DATUM(0);
 counter_cache *ptr = (counter_cache *) fcinfo->flinfo->fn_extra;

 if (ptr == NULL)

  fcinfo->flinfo->fn_extra = MemoryContextAlloc(fcinfo->flinfo->fn_mcxt,
  ptr = (counter_cache *) fcinfo->flinfo->fn_extra;
  ptr->iterations = 0;
  ptr->typoutput = InvalidOid;

  if (PG_ARGISNULL(1))
   elog(ERROR, "second parameter (output frequency) must not be NULL");

  ptr->freq = PG_GETARG_INT32(1);

   Oid valtype;
   Oid typoutput;
   bool typIsVarlena;

   valtype = get_fn_expr_argtype(fcinfo->flinfo, 0);
   getTypeOutputInfo(valtype, &typoutput, &typIsVarlena);
   ptr->typoutput = typoutput;
 if (++ptr->iterations % ptr->freq == 0)
  if (!OidIsValid(ptr->typoutput))
   elog(NOTICE, "processed %ld rows", ptr->iterations);
   /* show a processed row, when it's requested */
   if (PG_ARGISNULL(0))
    elog(NOTICE, "processed %ld rows, current value is null", ptr->iterations);
    elog(NOTICE, "processed %ld rows, current value is '%s'", ptr->iterations,
              OidOutputFunctionCall(ptr->typoutput, value));


CREATE OR REPLACE FUNCTION counter(anyelement, int, bool)
RETURNS anyelement

And usage isn't complex too:
/* transformation */
INSERT INTO destination_table
   SELECT (r).*
  FROM (SELECT counter(to_destionation_table(_source), 1000, true) r
           FROM source _source) x
real output:
