Did plan invalidation make it safe to rely on the presence of a unique
index for planning decisions?
Couldn't we also do join removal for inner joins, when there's a foreign
key reference that enforces that there's one and only one matching tuple
in the removed table:
SELECT child.data FROM child, parent WHERE child.fkey = parent.pkey

Can you elaborate that a bit? I can't imagine a case where we wouldn't
want to remove a join, when we know we can.
