The patch submitter has neither provided an updated patch nor defended
his original submission as being the right thing.  If he doesn't take it
seriously enough to have done any followup, why should the rest of us?

At the moment, with the online-index and updatable-views patches both
pretty seriously broken, and no sign that the bitmap-index people are
awake at all, I might take it on myself to fix this one instead of those
others.  But is that what I should be spending my time on in the waning
days of the 8.2 freeze cycle?  Speak now or hold your peace.
