Hi all,
   When we debugging or hacking the internal, the tedious things is to
debug step by step the code, so that make sure the PostgreSQL generates the
right raw syntax tree or query tree or the plans.  Therefore, i think if we
have a uitility statment to show that, such as, we can using the explain
statment to ouput  the raw syntax tree of a sql or the query tree, etc
I think it would be a helpful tools for hackers to identify what's wrong in
the code we have changed because we can show the differents between
optimization-beforewards and optimization-afterwards in raw syntax tree,
query tree or etc. after performing the pull-up subselect and pull-up
subqueries the query tree made changes a lot. If there is a tools to show
the diff between them, i think that it's a good thing. So, the extened
feautes of explain statement as following maybe a helpful features.
Althoug, we can logging the raw tree by using the configuration, but the
raw node logs are logged on server, not client. in partice, we perhaps have
not rights to access the server, just only though the psql console. based
on the reasons i mentioned above, therefore, i think the extended features
of explain statments will be help us to do works more convinient.

PULL-UP-AFTER|...) select xxxx.

And, now i have implemented the Explain (QueryTree Raw) select xxx, to
output the raw syntax tree of a query statement. just like as below shown.

explain (*QueryTree RAW *) select * from foo, bar;

the output as :
 <explain comments="The Raw Query Tree Node">
  :distinctClause <>
  :intoClause <>
  :targetList ({RESTARGET :name <> :indirection <> :val {COLUMNREF :fields
({A_STAR}) :location 31} :location 31})
  :fromClause ({RANGEVAR :schemaname <> :relname foo :inhOpt 2
:relpersistence p :alias <> :location 38} {RANGEVAR :schemaname <> :reln
ame bar :inhOpt 2 :relpersistence p :alias <> :location 43})
  :whereClause <>
  :groupClause <>
  :havingClause <>
  :windowClause <>
  :valuesLists <>
  :sortClause <>
  :limitOffset <>
  :limitCount <>
  :lockingClause <>
  :withClause <>
  :op 0
  :all false
  :larg <>
  :rarg <>
(23 rows)

Best Regards,
