After failing to bring some light onto this during my general update,
will try again here. We now have 3 updated patches that refactor things
from how this was originally presented, with one asked implementation
question. There's also a spawned off "Join push-down for foreign tables"
patch off in another thread.

I don't think it's really clear to everyone what state this feature
proposal is in. We've gotten bits of review here from KaiGai and Heikki,
big picture comments from Robert and Tom. Given how these are
structured, is fdw_helper_funcs_v3.patch at the point where it should be
considered for committer review? Maybe pgsql_fdw_v5.patch too?

The others seem to be more in flux to me, due to all the recent pushdown
