I really do mean combine when I say combine. I'm pretty sure that I've
coded everything properly to work even if there was 10 stages of
aggregation, in this case 9 of those would be combine nodes, and only
1 of them a finalize node. I can see why you'd say that at a glace of
explain.c, but it's more relevant that agg->finalizeAggs is true,
giving the combine test is in the else if condition. The test for
combineStates is only there so we don't output Finalize Aggregate for
normal 1 stage aggregates.

I simply don't think FILTER should be shown if combineStates is true.
This means that it will only be shown at the first aggregate node, the
one with combineStates == false. I think this is a good idea due to
the fact that this is the only place where FILTERing is done.
