As far as that goes, I think the infrastructure introduced by the
parallel join patch will be quite helpful here.  That introduces the
concept of a "partial path" - that is, a path that needs a Gather node
in order to be completed.  And that's exactly what you need here:
after join planning, if there's a partial path available for the final
rel, then you can consider
FinalizeAggregate->Gather->PartialAggregate->[the best partial path].
Of course, whether a partial path is available or not, you can
consider Aggregate->[the best regular old path].
