Such applications are potentionally possible, but aren't presented yet.
Currently only k-d-tree and suffix-tree are presented. Suffix-tree supports
prefix search like btree with *_pattern_ops. (Oleg will corect me if I'm
missing something)

For the queries you mentioned you may see LIKE acceleration in wildspeed
module (http://www.sai.msu.su/~megera/wiki/wildspeed) and pg_trgm of 9.1 (
