For those who are willing to look this,
352a24a1f9d6f7d4abb1175bfd22acc358f43140 breaks this. So just
before it can accept this patches cleanly.

  "of rows rows consistent it" => "or rows consistent with it"?

  "that given the a" => "that given a" ?



  - The k is assumed larger than 1. I think assertion is required.

  - "/* end of the preceding group */" seems to be better if it
    is just after the "if (multi_sort.." currently just after it.

  - The following comment seems mis-edited.
    > * If there is a single are no contradicting rows, count the group
    > * as supporting, otherwise contradicting.
    maybe this would be like the following? The varialbe counting
    the first "contradiction" is named "n_violations". This seems
    somewhat confusing.
    > * If there are no violating rows up to here, count the group
    > * as supporting, otherwise contradicting.
   - "/* first columns match, but the last one does not"
     else if (multi_sort_compare_dims((k - 1), (k - 1), ...

     The above comparison should use multi_sort_compare_dim, not

   - This function counts "n_contradicting_rows" but it is not
     referenced. Anyway n_contradicting_rows = numrows -
     n_supporing_rows so it and n_contradicting seem


   - In the commnet,
     "* covering jut 2 columns, to the largest ones, covering all columns"
     "* included int the statistics. We start from the smallest ones because we"

    l1: "jut" => "just", l2: "int" => "in"


   - struct MVDependencyData/ MVDependenciesData

     The varialbe length member at the last of the structs should
     be defined using FLEXIBLE_ARRAY_MEMBER, from the convention.

   - I'm not sure how much it impacts performance, but some
     struct members seems to have a bit too wide types. For
     example, MVDepedenciesData.type is of int32 but it can have
     only '1' for now and it won't be two-digits. Also ndeps
     cannot be so large.


  multi_sort_compare_dims needs comment.

  This patch uses int16 as the type of attrubute number but it
  might be better to use AttrNumber for the purpose.
  (Specifically it seems defined as the type for an attribute
   index but also used as the varialbe for number of attributes)

Sorry for the random comment in advance. I'll learn this further.
