I think you are correct.  However, unless parallel_tuple_cost is set very
low, apply_projection_to_path never gets called with the Gather path as an
argument.  It gets ruled out at some earlier stage, presumably because it
assumes the projection step cannot make it win if it is already behind by

So the attached patch improves things, but doesn't go far enough.
