True.  I think it's pretty wacky that we store the opfuncid in the
tree at all.  If somebody were to propose adding a dependent value of
that sort to a node type that didn't already have it, I suspect either
you or I would do our best to shoot that down.  The only possible
argument for having that in there at all is that the performance gains
from so doing are so large that we have no choice but to sacrifice a
principle to expediency.
