The plugin works, but it currently extracts 0 for number of tuples. So
you need to override that to give a different answer.

I was going to add an SQL function to estimate the number of tuples in
the same way as the optimizer does. That way we get the same answer from
the EXPLAIN as we would have got on the main server and we don't need to
run select count(*) against each table (unless we want to).
