I don't think this is a good idea.  Most of the time, no system
columns will be present, and we'll just be scanning the Bitmapset
twice rather than once.  Sure, that doesn't take many extra cycles,
but if the point of all this is to micro-optimize this code, that
particular change is going in the wrong direction.
