Yes, if the join can be detected not to duplicate the groups then a
normal aggregate node can be pushed below the join. No need for
Partial Aggregate, or Finalize Aggregate nodes.

I've a pending patch in the commitfest named "Unique Joins", which
aims teach the planner about the unique properties of joins. So you
should just have both stages of aggregation occur for now, and that
can be improved on once the planner is a bit smart and knows about
unique joins.
