You're missing my point: that is possible in an indexscan, but *not* in a
bitmap indexscan, because the index AM APIs are totally different in the
two cases. In a bitmap scan, nothing more than a TID bitmap is ever
returned out to anyplace that could execute arbitrary expressions.
In the case at hand, the planner should have considered a plan of this
shape as well. Presumably it concluded it was more expensive than using
the bitmap approach. Jeff might try "set enable_bitmapscan = 0" and
compare the estimated and actual costs.
