This is interesting!
I took a quick look at the patch. Here is my initial comment. I don't
think it's so good to set the pathkeys of a unique-index path to
query_pathkeys after the scan/join optimization because it can't exploit the
full-orderedness property in implementing mergejoins, i.e., it can't skip
doing an explicit sort that is considered unnecessary from the property.
So, I think the path's pathkeys should be set to query_pathkeys before the
scan/join optimization, i.e., at the index-path creation time.
If you wouldn't mind, I'd like to rework on the patch.
