rbtree is a prerequisite for knngist. point_ops was too. I think
we're going to get rbtree done yet, but the main patch seems out of
reach. There's no way it's going to go in without both pre-commit and
post-commit changes, and I don't think we have time for that now.

I wouldn't worry about that one. It's a small patch. It's not going
to suck a lot of anyone's time; it'll either make it, or not.

I think this one is in pretty good shape. I think the ball is Andrew
Dunstan's court to commit it, or not.

Too much attempt to design an abstraction layer for things we can't
abstract; not enough doing something that is good enough for now.
Let's just put in something that's not particularly abstract and we
can rearrange later.

This was marked ready by the reviewer a long time ago; but that was
considerably over-optimistic, as the recent comments on that thread
attest. A major feature without documentation is by definition not

I think this is close. Another one for Andrew Dunstan to make the
call, I believe.

Doesn't matter because this one is an open item. I'm hoping Itagaki
Takahiro is going to take the lead on this one because he committed
the prior patch that created the situation we're now trying to fix.

Unfortunately, we haven't been very successful this time in attracting
non-committer reviewers. Only about 20% of the committed patches are
listed as having been reviewed by a non-committer. Still, I agree
with your overall conclusion.
