Mumble.  Why, exactly, was this a good idea?  The upside of commit
45639a0525a58a2700cf46d4c934d6de78349dac is only that you do fewer
plan invalidations, but surely that's not a significant benefit for
most people: user mappings don't change that often.  On the downside,
there are now cases where joins would have gotten pushed down
previously and now they won't.  In other words, you've saved some
replanning activity at the cost of delivering worse plans.  That seems
pretty suspect to me, although I grant that the scenarios where either
the old or the new behavior is actually a problem are all somewhat off
the beaten path.
