I'm almost sure this way is the better bet.  I actually think at
present the GatherPath is always on top of a scan or join, and those
all project.  There might be other cases in the future that don't, but
I think it'd be fine to leave off worrying about this until we (a)
find a case where it happens and (b) failing to charge for the Result
causes a problem.  The current situation of never projecting in the
workers is far worse.
