Hmm, I was thinking we would get rid of CatalogUpdateIndexes altogether.
Two of the callers are in the new routines (which I propose to rename to
CatalogTupleInsert and CatalogTupleUpdate); the only remaining one is in
InsertPgAttributeTuple.  I propose that we inline the three lines into
all those places and just remove CatalogUpdateIndexes.  Half the out-of-
core places that are using this function will be broken as soon as WARM
lands anyway.  I see no reason to keep it.  (I have already modified the
patch this way -- no need to resend).

Unless there are objections I will push this later this afternoon.
