Imo what it does looks sane - it adds parentheses whenever a child of a
set operation is a set operation again to make sure the order in which
the generated set operations are parsed/interpreted stays the same.

Now, we could probably remove that in some more cases (left is SetOp but
doesn't have an ORDER BY/LIMIT/...), but it's hard enough to figure out
when that's safe that I wouldn't bother.
