Well, they are not just "improved" but actually "Reduced" to  
triviality. Reduce does all the work and Minimize is only left with 
something that looks like this (except that with more terms)


Minimize[x + y + z, {x == 20 && y == 4 && z == 19 ||
     x == 20 && y == 9 && z == 18}, {x, y, z}]


This sort of thing even Minimize can manage;-)
