OK, I take back the possible-bug comment: the special case only applies
to the FK-side triggers, which is to say RI_FKey_check, and that routine
doesn't attempt to skip the check on equal old/new keys. I'm still
wondering though if the KeysEqual tests in the other RI triggers aren't
now a waste of cycles.
