This is great.   I got a question, is it possible make btree index to support OR
as well?  Is btree supports more invasive, in the sense that we need to do
enhance ScanKey to supports an array of values?
Btree now works by follow: find the max/min tuple which satisfies condtions and then executes forward/backward scan over leaf pages. For complicated clauses it's not obvious how to find min/max tuple. Scanning whole index isn't an option from preformance point of view.
