Nothing really; the cursor code does its own counting.

Hmm ... now that I look at it, there is already a counter
estate->es_processed, so there's really no reason for ExecutorRun to
return anything at all.

es_processed is only uint32, so someday we might want to widen it, but
I think it's not important in current usage.  In any case that'd be
orthogonal to this discussion.
