My understanding is the GEQO cannot arrive at a better plan than the
standard optimizer, so unless you wish to measure planning time there
isn't much to test. What is the quality of the plans it generates? Well
that varies according to the input; sometimes it gets the right plan,
other times it doesn't get close.
