Hmm, maybe, but not sure if it will be simpler.  The point is that we
don't need to always return the epqslot, it will only be returned for
the special case, so you might need to use an additional boolean
variable to indicate when to fill the epqslot or someway indicate the
same via es_trig_tuple_slot.  I think even if we somehow do that, we
need to do something additional like taking tuple from epqslot and
store it in es_trig_tuple_slot as I am not sure if we can directly
assign the slot returned by EvalPlanQual to es_trig_tuple_slot.
OTOH, the approach used by Amit Khandekar seems somewhat better as you
can directly return the slot returned by EvalPlanQual in the output
parameter.  IIUC, the same technique is already used by
GetTupleForTrigger where it returns the epqslot in an additional
