The introduction to using EXPLAIN:  
http://developer.postgresql.org/pgdocs/postgres/using-explain.html 
includes a footnote at the bottom suggesting you might follow along with 
these examples because they come from the regression test database.  
This would really be a lot more useful if it gave some sort of clue just 
how exactly a user might get that database populated with that 
regression data.  I'm not even quite sure myself exactly what point in 
the regression testing cycle these examples came from.  Another open 
question in my head is whether enough pieces of the regression set are 
shipped in the most common packaging sets that it's ever practical to 
expect users to run the tests at all.  Thoughts?
