Well, that's sort of the zero-order solution, but it doesn't work if the
join operators are cross-type.

I poked around to see if we didn't have some code already for that, and
soon found that not only do we have such code (equality_ops_are_compatible)
but actually almost this entire patch duplicates logic that already exists
in optimizer/util/pathnode.c, to wit create_unique_path's subroutines
query_is_distinct_for et al.  So I'm thinking what this needs to turn into
is an exercise in refactoring to allow that logic to be used for both

I notice that create_unique_path is not paying attention to the question
of whether the subselect's tlist contains SRFs or volatile functions.
It's possible that that's a pre-existing bug.
