It's the optimizer's job to figure out which path to pick though, based
on which will have the lowest cost.

This sounds terribly ugly and like we're pushing optimization decisions
on to the user instead of just figuring out what the best answer is.

Being able to do bulk movement would be useful, but (as I proposed
months ago) being able to do asyncronous returns would be extremely
useful also, when you consider FDWs and Append()- the main point there
being that you want to keep the FDWs busy and working in parallel.
