Not at present.  There was some discussion of this but it seems like
a fair amount of work --- we don't currently track statistics on how
many of a column's entries are toasted or how big they are.  For that
matter it would be entirely unreasonable to pin the cost on "seq scan";
you'd need to look in close detail at exactly where and how the Vars get
used, and distinguish simply copying a Var from actual use of its value.
The planner is mostly uninterested in the evaluation costs of plan node
targetlists at the moment, and IIRC that's something not so easily
