[ itch... ]  That would be a whole lot *more* invasive than what I'm
proposing now.  It might be an interesting avenue to pursue,
particularly in conjunction with the planner's inability to deal with
non-nullable expressions in subselect outputs below outer joins (which
seems to require some special kind of Var to fix).  But I can't see
back-patching it.
