I was looking at this a bit in IRC, and I was more concerned by the fact
that 7.3 was 20% than 7.2 on the same hardware, when they both used the
same query plan (consider the data at the end of the URL above, after
the execution of 'SET enable_mergejoin = off;').

Also, is it expected that the cardinality estimates for join steps won't
be very accurate, right? (estimated: 19 rows, actual: 765 rows)
