What problem are you trying to solve with these changes?  I'm not
saying that it's a bad idea, but I think you should spell out the
motivation a little more explicitly.

I think performance is likely to be a key concern here.  Maybe these
interfaces are Just Better with TupleTableSlots and the patch is a win
regardless of pluggable storage -- but if the reverse turns out to be
true, and this slows things down in cases that anyone cares about, I
think that's going to be a problem.
