The message Noah cited mentions only a 4% regression, but this one seems far worse: http://www.postgresql.org/message-id/20160413200148.bawmwjdmggbll...@alap3.anarazel.de That's more than a 5X penalty, which seems like it would make the feature unusable; unless there is an argument that that's an extreme case that wouldn't be representative of most real-world usage.
