First, sorry guys for letting this slide - I was overwhelmed by other works,
and this kind of slipped my mind :-(

After re-reading the thread, I'd prefer to go with Dean's suggestion, i.e.
simply reporting the total number of invocations of the forward transition
functions, and the total number of invocations of the reverse transition
function, over reporting nothing. The labels of the two counts would simply
be "Forward Transitions" and "Reverse Transitions".

But I don't want this issue to prevent us from getting this patch into 9.4,
so if there are objections to this, I'll rip out the EXPLAIN stuff all

I'll see to updating the docs, and will post a final patch within the next
few days.

Dean, have you by chance looked at the other patches yet?
