BTW, some strangeness of g_cube_decompress() catch my eye.  It compares
results of two evaluations of same expression DatumGetNDBOXP(entry->key).

NDBOX   *key = DatumGetNDBOXP(entry->key);
> if (key != DatumGetNDBOXP(entry->key))

In fact it's correct, because it compares results of two detoasting.  If
datum isn't toasted then results would be the same.  And if data is toasted
then results would be two different allocation of detoasted datum.
However, we do extra detoasting here.

For example, see gbt_var_decompress().  There is no extra detoasting here.
