Unnecessary arithmetic expressions

Applies to ❌ Open Source Edition   ✅ Express Edition   ✅ Professional Edition   ✅ Enterprise Edition

The jOOQ expression tree may contain unnecessary arithmetic expressions, which may not be desirable in generated SQL output. These expressions may originate from user written jOOQ API, or from internal emulations.
