But I am not talking about model change, it's more like formula change.
Introducing limit added one variable where outer plan could influence
inner plan selection.
But I am talking simply about cost calculation for given node. Now cost
is based on statistical expected value, the proposal is (something like)
to take maximum cost on n% probability range near expected value.
This, of course, will make calculations slower, but won't add any degree
of freedom to calculations.
