They'll be exactly the same, actually, as long as the thing predicts
exactly one row retrieved.  So it's quasi-random which plan you get.

btcostestimate needs to be improved to understand that in multicolumn
index searches with inequality conditions, we may have to scan through
tuples that don't meet all the qualifications.  It's not accounting for
that cost at the moment, which is why the estimates are the same.
