Sounds great! Thank you. The repo is available here: http://git.postgresql.org/gitweb/?p=users/jdavis/postgres.git;a=log;h=refs/heads/rangetypes I'd prefer to include it in the initial patch. If the current GiST code is going to be replaced, then there's not much sense reviewing/testing it. You may need to consider unbounded and empty ranges specially. I made an attempt to do so in the current GiST code, and you might want to take a look at that first. I'm not particularly attached to my approach, but we should do something reasonable with unbounded and empty ranges.
