I think it rather requires *replacing* two resjunk columns by one new
one.  The whole-row references for the individual foreign tables are
only there to support EvalPlanQual; if we instead have a column to
populate the foreign scan's slot directly, then we can use that column
for that purpose directly and there's no remaining use for the
whole-row vars on the baserels.

It is what I had in mind.

OK  I'll investigate this further.

I noticed that the approach using a column to populate the foreign scan's slot directly wouldn't work well in some cases. For example, consider:

SELECT * FROM verysmall v LEFT JOIN (bigft1 JOIN bigft2 ON bigft1.x = bigft2.x) ON v.q = bigft1.q AND v.r = bigft2.r FOR UPDATE OF v;

The best plan is presumably something like this as you said before:

-> Nested Loop
   -> Seq Scan on verysmall v
   -> Foreign Scan on bigft1 and bigft2
Remote SQL: SELECT * FROM bigft1 JOIN bigft2 ON bigft1.x = bigft2.x AND bigft1.q = $1 AND bigft2.r = $2

Consider the EvalPlanQual testing to see if the updated version of a tuple in v satisfies the query. If we use the column in the testing, we would get the wrong results in some cases.
