I think the review is hard for people who are not interested in the planner
very much. And as for further development, there are a few design decisions
that can hardly be resolved without Tom Lane's comments. Right now I recall
two problems: 1) is the way I currently store RelOptInfo for the grouped
relations correct?, 2) how should we handle types for which logical equality
does not imply physical (byte-wise) equality?

Fortunately it seems now that I'm not the only one who cares about 2), so this
problem might be resolved soon:

But 1) still remains.
