After thinking a bit, I merged all the abbreviated-keys stuff including
the ordered-set-aggregate item. Let me know if that seems wrong.

OK, also merged.

Meh. The release notes are not the place for that kind of detail,
mainly because nobody will look at old release notes when searching
for info. Also, I saw that you already had a rather long discussion
about this associated with the replacement_sort_tuples GUC (which
*is* a reasonable place for it). My intention in providing the link
was so people could consult that info easily --- but I added a few
more words to point out explicitly that there was more info there.
