Another option here is to use a partial index. You can index on some other
column -- perhaps the column you want the results ordered by where the where
clause is true.

Something like:

create index t_idx on t (name) where c>0 and d>0;

then any select with a matching where clause can use the index:

select * from t where c>0 and d>0 order by name

Could scan the index and not even have to sort on name.
