No, that's not what I'm asking for, nor do I think it's right.  What
I'm complaining about is that originally params_list was after
retrieved_attrs, but in v5 it's before retrieved_attrs.  I'm fine with
inserting tlist after rel, or in general inserting new arguments in
the sequence.  But you reversed the relative ordering of params_list
and retrieved_attrs.

Hmm, does it work if we put bar.b + foo.b < 10 in the ON clause for
the join between lt and foo/bar? I think so...

I don't think that's true.  I theorize that every qual can either go
into the top level WHERE clause or the ON clause of some join.
