That issue has not been addressed. The reason stated was that it would
make code complicated. But I have not had chance to look at how
complicated would be and assess myself whether that's worth the
trouble. There was another issue

Also, I don't see any discussion about my concern [3] about a parent
with child from multiple foreign servers with different FDWs. So, I am
not sure whether the patch really fixes the problem in its entirety.
