Considering it's been broken for several releases and no one noticed,
I'm not sure it's critical. This is just something I noticed while
looking at Mike's recent complaint that GEQO is too slow. This change
actually makes it slower :-( but I'm hoping to find that we can buy
that back with other improvements.
