Seems fine to me, although we should handle the anyarray case too, I
guess. That is, get_agg_clause_costs_walker() should do this too:

    /* Same thing for array_agg_array_(de)serialize. */
    if ((aggserialfn == F_ARRAY_AGG_ARRAY_SERIALIZE ||
         aggdeserialfn == F_ARRAY_AGG_ARRAY_DESERIALIZE) &&
        costs->hasNonSerial = true;

Other than that, the patch seems fine to me, and it's already marked as
RFC so I'll leave it at that.

The last obstacle seems to be the argument about the risks of the patch
breaking queries of people relying on the ordering. Not sure what's are
the right next steps in this regard ...
