Patch works, but there's a bit I haven't finished yet - checking unique
Did plan invalidation make it safe to rely on the presence of a unique
index for planning decisions?
Couldn't we also do join removal for inner joins, when there's a foreign

Can you elaborate that a bit? I can't imagine a case where we wouldn't
want to remove a join, when we know we can.
