I haven't tested it. Agreed, it does add an AND operation to places where t_natts is accessed.

Tom, how should this be tested?  I assume some loop of the same query
over and over again.

I'd be satisfied by a demonstration of no meaningful difference in
pgbench numbers.

It's *probably* not a problem, but you never know if you don't check...

I doubt there's any measurable difference, but I can do a pgbench run to make sure.
