I remember Teodor remarking that there's some problem with fetching
backwards in a GIST indexscan, but I don't know the details --- in
particular, no idea whether it's fixable or we need to put in something
to prevent trying it.  The latter would be a bit of a PITA since right
now indexscans are assumed to support backwards scan regardless of
index type.
