Uh, that's not the point: the real problem is when B is simply smaller
than A.  For example, server encoding utf8, client encoding latin1.
The current code results in failures if any non-latin1 data has to be
transmitted from worker to leader, even though the query might not have
ever sent that data to the client, and therefore would work fine in
non-parallel mode.
