Actually the problem may be in layers, and the problem may even be not
noticed until it's late enough. As far as I remember from this list
there are problems with column being integer and parameter prepared as
bigint or number. Same for number vs double vs float.
As for me it would be great for optimizer to consider the next:
1) val1::narrow = val2::wide as (val1::narrow = val2::narrow and
val2::narrow = val2::wide)
2) val1::narrow < val2::wide as (val1::narrow < val2::narrow and
val1::wide < val2::wide)
3) val1::narrow > val2::wide as (val1::narrow + 1 > val2::narrow and
val1::wide > val2::wide)
Of course it should use additional check it this allows to use an index.
Surely, this is not an easy thing to implement, but as for me similar
question are raised quite often in this list.
