That sounds like something we could do pretty easily, though interpreting
the results might be nontrivial.  There will, I expect, be a mix of
queries that do get slower as well as those that don't.  As long as the
former are just queries that we hope to get some plan-quality win on,
I think that's an acceptable result ... but we'll need to record enough
data to tell what we're looking at.

For starters, I'll try logging whether the query has setops, grouping,
aggregation, window functions, and try to measure planning time change
in each of those categories.
