I think the main reason this question is in-scope for this patch is
precisely the problem of what do we do about the regression tests.

I'm not in favor of exposing some SQL-level functions whose sole purpose
is to support those regression test queries, because while those queries
are very useful for detecting errors in handmade opclasses, they're hacks,
and always have been.  They don't work well (or at all, really) for
anything more than btree/hash cases.  It'd be better to expose amvalidate
functions, even if we don't yet have full infrastructure for them.
