Right.  However, it's disappointing that this isn't in, because the
number of use cases for KNN-gist in core isn't very large.  We really
need support for KNN in btree_gist to make it useful.

Given that it is a contrib module, I personally wouldn't object to it
getting patched later, like during alpha or beta.  But somebody's got
to do the work, and I've got a dozen higher-priority problems right now.
