OK, done.  (ATM it seems like we wouldn't need gcontext in the transvalue
either, but I left it there in case we want it later.)

I'm not very happy about this one; we intentionally did not expose
these structs, so that we could freely make fixes like, for example,
your immediately preceding patch.

I think it'd be worth considering whether there's a way to allow
third-party ordered-set aggs to use the infrastructure in orderedsetaggs.c
while still treating these structs as opaque.  In any case we'd need a
more carefully thought-through API than just decreeing that some private
structs are now public.
