We have been waiting for applying our patch to current sources
to be in sync. We'll change sources of new version of contrib-intarray
taking into account your comments.
1. Implementation some btree_ops using GiST
But we need a solution of problem with different types of
key and column compatible with multi-key GiST index
2. After resolving the problem 1. we need to remove workaround in
rtree GiSt code
3. regression test for built-in rtree and based on it regression test for
4. documentation and Guide for programmers
We badly need a solution from item 1 !!! We don't know internals of postgres
enough to resolve this problem ourselves. Do you have any idea ?
