> This patch re-enables support for partial indices. This includes:
> * Updates to documentation
> * Added pg_dump support
> * Corrections to the grammer to accept the CREATE statement
> * Update old broken code each index type
> * Fixes to VACUUM so that it handles indices in general better
> * Updates to the optimiser and cost estimators to handle them
> * Initial steps to removal of EXTEND INDEX statement
> * Patches the regression tests
> Note that Tom Lane has already taken the portion that deals with vacuum as
> part of his new vacuum code.
> As for the extend index statement, it was decided to remove it since it was
> not really flexible enough, so in general you'd be better off just dropping
> the index and recreating it.
> For further discussion, see the pgsql-general list. The patch against
> anonymous CVS as of a day ago or so.
> Many thanks to Tom Lane for tips and pointers during the initial revisions
> of this patch.
