Hi Petr,

That sounds like a good idea; I didn't think about that. I would like to
make it uint16 though just in case if we decide to increase GIDSIZE from
200 to something more than 256 (Postgres-XL does that already). That still
fits in the same aligned width, on both 32 as well as 64-bit machines. New
version attached.
