For inheritance and partitioning, we translate parent expressions to
child expression by applying Var translations. The translated
expressions differ only in the Var nodes (at least for partitioning
this true, and I believe it to be true for inheritance). I have been
toying with an idea of having some kind of a (polymorphic?) Var node
which can represent parent and children. That will greatly reduce the
need to translate the expression trees and will also help in this
implementation. I am wondering, if ProxyPath could be helpful in
avoiding the cost of reparameterize_path_by_child() introduced for
partition-wise join.
