Two new APIs added.

- CatalogInsertHeapAndIndex which does a simple_heap_insert followed by
catalog updates
- CatalogUpdateHeapAndIndex which does a simple_heap_update followed by
catalog updates

There are only a handful callers remain for simple_heap_insert/update after
this patch. They are typically working with already opened indexes and
hence I left them unchanged.

make check-world passes with the patch.
