I feel no great need to move the amhandler functions, and if we did,
I would not want to put them into the same files as the amvalidate
functions. As I said before, the latter are appendages to the AMs
that really don't have anything to do with the core index access code.
They require very different sets of #include files, for instance.
So I see the AMs as containing three separate subsets of code:
core index access/maintenance, amcostestimate, and amvalidate.
The second and third really need to be in separate files because of
#include footprint considerations, but the amhandler function can
perfectly well go in with the first group.
