On 1st of February 2021, Peter Eisentraut committed patch:
SEARCH and CYCLE clauses
This adds the SQL standard feature that adds the SEARCH and CYCLE
clauses to recursive queries to be able to do produce breadth- or
depth-first search orders and detect cycles. These clauses can be
rewritten into queries using existing syntax, and that is what this
patch does in the rewriter.

Well, I was not really in a mood to solve it, so I just told him to try with recursive queries, and went on my way.
But I thought about it. And decided to see if I can write the query.
