Hi, Alvaro!

Thank you for your proposal.  One question about vacuum excites me most.

Imagine another situation: PK column was not updated, but indirect indexed
column was updated.
Thus, for single heap tuple we would have single PK tuple and two indirect
index tuples (correct me if I'm wrong).
How are we going to delete old indirect index tuple?
