OID was removed from btree tuples ~ year ago.
Now I want to use heap tuple ID (referenced by index tuple)
as (last) part of index key and get rid of BT_CHAIN flag:
all keys will be UNIQUE and there will be no problems with
handling duplicate keys any more (idea (C) Oracle -:)
But this means that heap tuple id will be added to index
tuples on internal pages, not on the leaf ones...
