I committed this, but I'm a bit uncomfortable with it: should the
TupleTableSlot be part of the ModifyTableState rather than the EState?

Regarding 0002, I think that this is kind of a strange fix.  Wouldn't
it be better to get hold of the original tuple instead of reversing
the conversion?  And what of the idea of avoiding the conversion in
the (probably very common) case where we can?
