Curious question - could/should this use page prefetch, similar to what
bitmap heap scan does? I believe the answer is 'yes'.

With SYSTEM that should be rather straightforward to implement, because
it already works at page level, and it's likely to give significant
performance speedup, similar to bitmap index scan:


With BERNOULLI that might be more complex to implement because of the
page/tuple sampling, and the benefit is probably much lower than for
SYSTEM because it's likely that at least one tuple will be sampled.

I'm not saying it has to be done in this CF (or that it makes the patch

For example, this seems like a very nice project for the GSoC (clear
scope, not too large, ...).
