I read this as a proposal to redesign the entire optimizer and
executor to use some new kind of plan.  That's not a project I'm
willing to entertain; it is hard to imagine we could do it in a
reasonable period of time without introducing bugs and performance
regressions.  I think there is a great deal of performance benefit
that we can get by changing things incrementally.
