Seems a lot of people liked BRIN. I will be adopting that by renaming
files and directories soon.
Here's v14. I fixed a few bugs; most notably, queries with IS NULL and
IS NOT NULL now work correctly. Also I made the pageinspect extension
be able to display existing index tuples (I had disabled that when
generalizing the opclass stuff). It only works with minmax opclasses
for now; it should be easy to fix if/when we add more stuff though.
I also added some docs. These are not finished by any means. They
talk about the index using the BRIN term.
All existing opclasses were renamed to "<type>_minmax_ops".
