Hm, I'd actually lean to just leave it as is for now. JITing halfway
random queries isn't actually that bad... If we get fed up with the
additional time after a while, we can do something then?

Not quite sure what you mean?

Right. I've not found a good place to hook into that has enough context
to do JITed deforming otherwise. I'm inclined to just relegate
jit_tuple_deforming to debugging status (i.e. exclude from show all,
docs etc) for now.
