I had thought about this and concluded it was not worth the trouble.
It could be made to work if we copy the snapshot data from old plan to
new, but realistically there's no value in it.  Existing applications
that are successfully using backwards-fetch are using queries that don't
need materialization; therefore there's no compatibility gain from
adding this extra code.
