Yeah.  Most of the executor is in principle parallelizable at the
plan-node level (ignoring the obvious and severe implementation
problems with parallelizing *anything* in the backend).  It's not
good for wCTE to be creating a user-visible assumption that certain
things will happen in a predefined order.
