Right, because that's how addTargetToSortList() would parse it.

Sorry, not following?  It's true that what I added to explain.c doesn't
worry too much about the possibility of get_ordering_op_properties()
failing --- that really shouldn't happen for something that was previously
accepted as a sorting operator.  But if it does, "reverse" will just be
left as false, so the behavior will anyway be unsurprising I think.
We could alternatively make it throw a "cache lookup failed" error but
I'm not sure how that makes anyone's life better.
