I thought we have to distinguish a case if LIMIT 0 is supplied.
However, in this case, ExecLimit() never goes down to the child nodes,
thus, its ps_numTuples shall not be referenced anywhere.

OK, I'll use uint64 for ps_numTuples, and 0 shall be a usual default
value that means no specific number of rows are given.
