Hi, I see in the v10 release notes (2017-10-05) that there's been a change to "Improve performance of queries affected by row-level security restrictions". I am using RLS in a Postgres 9.5 database and am seeing some very bad performance when joining tables. Upgrading this DB to v10 shows a huge performance increase in some cases where RLS has proven to be an issue, but not all.
I see here (https://www.postgresql.org/message-id/14730.1508278004%40sss.pgh.pa.us), that Tom Lane (author of the commit for the aforementioned release note) remarked on 2017-10-17: "I would *not* recommend RLS if you can equally well stick the equivalent conditions into your queries. There is way too much risk of taking a serious performance hit due to a bad plan." What's the current advice, and future plans for row-level security performance optimisations? Though things have improved in v10, is there likely to always be that risk of a bad plan arising?
