I am suggesting this possibility in case we run of time to review and
commit reparameterize_path_by_child() entirely. If we can do that, I
will be happy.

In case, we have to include a stripped down version of
reparameterize_path_by_child(), with which I am fine too, we will need
to disable LATERAL joins, so that we don't end up with an error "could
not devise a query plan for the given query".
