When I was looking at the recent parallelism related commits, I noticed a
RelOptInfo.consider_parallel flag. That and the function
set_rel_consider_parallel() may be of interest in this regard.
set_append_rel_size() passes the parent's state of this flag down to child
relations but I guess that's not  what you're after.
