Perhaps I'm biased by knowing some of the people involved, but I don't
think anyone on this thread has been anything but polite.  It would
certainly be great if PostgreSQL could properly estimate the
selectivity of expressions like this without resorting to nasty hacks,
but it can't, and unfortunately, there's really no possibility of that
changing any time soon.  Even if someone implements a fix today, the
soonest it will appear in a production release is June 2010.  So, any
suggestion for improvement is going to be in the form of suggesting
that you modify the schema in some way.  I know that's not really what
you're looking for, but unfortunately it's the best we can do.

As far as I can tell, it is not correct to say that you referenced the
previous thread.  I do not see any such reference.
