Except from choosing algorithms and implementations based on the properties
of operators' actual input(s) at runtime, the physical algebra plan (MIL
program) is executed as is.
Choosing the algorothms and implementations is done inside the operators'
implementations (see e.g., the code in MonetDB/src/gdk/relop.(mx|c)), and
can only be traced by single-stepping the execution in a debugger or by
enabling debugging output via the Mserver commandline option

(see MonetDB4/conf/MonetDB.conf[.in] or <prefix>/etc/MonetDB.conf for all
available debug options.)
