Re: Decide if function is algebraic at planning phase

There is one way you could shoe-horn this in.  EvalFuncs can implement funcToArgMapping, which is built to allow functions to pick a different instance of themselves for different types (e.g. SUM(long) vs SUM(double)).  You could implement your logic in this function and then return an EvalFunc with or without Algebraic implemented based on your choice.
