- <para>
-  The current implementation of <acronym>GiST</acronym> within
-  <productname>PostgreSQL</productname> has some major limitations:
-  <acronym>GiST</acronym> index access is not concurrent, and the
-  <acronym>GiST</acronym> interface doesn't allow the development of 
certain
-  data types, such as digital trees (see papers by Aoki et al).
- </para>

AFAIK the GiST modifications suggested Aoki have not yet been 
implemented, so this should not have been removed.
