I also want to use amcheck to test sorting, especially external
sorting which is currently totally untested. It would be nice to see
testing of strxfrm() on the buildfarm, too -- amcheck provides a nice
way to make sure strxfrm() and strcoll() are in agreement for at least
those cases that are tested, without having to worry about portability
in the same way as a simple pg_regress approach would require.

Note that there are reportedly systems in mainstream use where
strxfrm() is broken; it doesn't agree with strcoll().
