Hmm ... but ... it seems to me that the test as it stands *should* fail
after this patch, because once the non-pkey grouping column is removed
the join removal optimization should apply.  I think we should look a bit
more closely at what's happening there.

(IOW, I wasn't so much unhappy with the change to that test case as
that it was being used as the only test case for this new behavior.
I see you added some new, separate test cases, so that's good; but
there's something fishy if the existing case doesn't change behavior.)
