After further thought about this I realized that there's another category of proof possibilities that is pretty simple to add while we're at it. Namely, once we've found that both subexpressions of the two operator clauses are equal(), we can use btree opclass relationships to prove that, say, "x < y implies x <= y" or "x < y refutes x > y", independently of just what x and y are. (Well, they have to be immutable expressions, but we'd not get this far if they're not.) We already had pretty nearly all of the machinery for that, but again it was only used for proving cases involving comparisons to constants. A little bit of refactoring later, I offer the attached draft patch. I'm thinking this is probably more than we want to slip into 9.4 at this point, but I'll commit it to HEAD soon if there are not objections. regards, tom lane
