Sorry, I may have misunderstood your question(s). Seeing your first
question in the thread, I see that you're looking to query non-system
tables within the executor. AFAIU, most of the processing within executor
takes the form of some node in some execution pipeline of a plan tree.
Perhaps, you're imagining some kind of node, subnode or some such. By the
way, some places like ATRewriteTable(), validateCheckConstraint() scan
user tables directly using low-level utilities within a dummy executor
context. I think Jim suggested something like that upthread.
