If the problem is multidimensional range search then GIST might be just
the ticket.  I am not sure if you'd need to do any coding though.  It
looks like contrib/btree_gist provides the necessary operator class, but
only for int4 and timestamp datatypes.

I think that our r-tree code is restricted to two-dimensional indexing,
so it wouldn't help.
