AFAIR, the code simply wasn't there before 8.1. I threw in an opclass
definition for circles while adding the rtree-equivalent opclasses
to GIST, because the use case for it was pretty obvious
(distance-to-a-point type queries). We could have added the same
opclass to rtree at the same time, but I saw no point given that we
were planning to drop rtree in the next release cycle.

It's a bit late to be objecting to that decision.
