pgbench probably isn't a very good test for this sort of thing - it
only issues very short-running queries where the cost of evaluating
expressions is a relatively small part of the total cost.  Even if
things get worse, I'm not sure if you'd see it.  I'm not sure exactly
how you could construct a test case that could be harmed by this patch
- I guess you'd want to initialize lots of CacheExprs but never make
use of the caching usefully?

It could also be useful to test things like TPC-H to see if you get an
