Thank you for the feedback.

Well, if we're speaking about this particular extension, if I understood
correctly, it fetches all parse tree nodes from Postgres and generates code
using this information. So to avoid compilation problems I believe you need
run `make USE_PGXS=1 genparser` again (it worked for me, I don't see any
mentions of `ArrayRef`).

But speaking generally, I don't see how we can provide backward
for those extensions, who are strongly coupled with implementation details
parsing tree. I mean, in terms of interface it's mostly about to replace
`ArrayRef` to `SubscriptingRef`, but I think it's better to do it in the
extension code.
