I have modified the patch to include above two changes.

Here second part of the comment (but have not yet advanced ..) seems
to be slightly misleading because this state has nothing to do with
the advancement of scan keys.

I have not changed this because I am not sure what you have in mind.

Looks good to me.

I have verified all your changes and they look good to me.

I have tried and it works for me on latest code except for one test
output file which could have been excluded.  I wonder whether you are
first applying the GUC related patch [1] before applying the optimizer
support related patch.  In anycase, to avoid confusion I am attaching
all the three patches with this e-mail.

I have rebased the optimizer/executor support related patch.
