I checked, yep at least on 11g the 10053 trace dumped "unparsed" queries in
multiple locations (including the final one - after transformations). This is very useful too, I hadn't noticed that before.

The _dump_qbc_tree still gives one advantage though, it lists which columns
are requested from child rowsources which may help understand some index/table io related issues better (for example why is some table still accessed even though all the columns in select list are also in some index -
the columns fetched for join/order conditions for example). It's possible to
parse this stuff manually out (in your head) from SQL text too, but with large SQLs it may be time consuming..

Anyway, this CBO thing is a helpful feature. You can take the eventual "unparsed" query and run it natively, tune it to acceptable speed and then see how to "backport" this fix into the view definitions :)

Does anyone know since which version the CBO dumps this info out?
