Perhaps I'm misreading it, but these tests seem to show no improvement
worth spending any effort on --- some of the tests improve a bit but
many get worse, and that's for tests allegedly designed to highlight the
improvement; there's been no attempt to measure the distributed cost of
the additional logic in scenarios where it's not helpful.  To say
nothing of the likelihood that it will be flat-out counterproductive
in yet other scenarios.

regression=# select id,sum(rt),count(*) from times group by id;
     id     |       sum       | count

Should we not just reject the patch and move on to something more
useful?
