RewriteExceptAll Logical Optimization Rule -- Rewriting Except (ALL) Operators

RewriteExceptAll is a catalyst/Rule.md[Catalyst rule] for transforming spark-sql-LogicalPlan.md[logical plans] (i.e. Rule[LogicalPlan]).

[[apply]] When catalyst/Rule.md#apply[executed], RewriteExceptAll transforms an Except.md[Except (ALL)] logical operator to...FIXME

RewriteExceptAll requires that the number of columns of the left- and right-side of the Except operator are the same or throws an AssertionError.

RewriteExceptAll is a part of the Replace Operators fixed-point rule batch of the base Logical Optimizer.
