Unsurprising: a comparison between a timestamp with timezone and
one without involves a timezone conversion, so it's gonna be slow.
It's a bit annoying that the system doesn't have the intelligence
to convert the constants to timestamptz just once; but I think
doing that would require introducing an implicit cast from
timestamp to timestamptz, which might cause surprising behaviors
