Thank you for new version of the patch.

There are some notes.


Documentation is compiled. But there are warnings about end-tags. Now it is 
necessary to have full named end-tags:

=# make -C doc/src/sgml check
/usr/sbin/onsgmls:json.sgml:574:20:W: empty end-tag

Documentation is out of date:
- catalogs.sgml needs to add information about additional pg_type fields
- create_type.sgml needs information about subscripting_parse, 
subscripting_assign and subscripting_fetch options
- xsubscripting.sgml is out of date


I think it is necessary to check Oids of subscripting_parse, 
subscripting_assign, subscripting_fetch. Maybe within TypeCreate().

Otherwise next cases possible:

=# CREATE TYPE custom (
   internallength = 8,
   input = custom_in,
   output = custom_out,
   subscripting_parse = custom_subscripting_parse);
=# CREATE TYPE custom (
   internallength = 8,
   input = custom_in,
   output = custom_out,
   subscripting_fetch = custom_subscripting_fetch);

Are all subscripting_* fields mandatory? If so if user provided at least one of 
them then all fields should be provided.

Should all types have support assigning via subscript? If not then 
subscripting_assign parameter is optional.

Here isAssignment is unused variable, so it could be removed.

As I mentioned earlier we need assigning eval_finfo and nested_finfo only for 
Also they should be assigned before calling ExprEvalPushStep(), not after. 
Otherwise some bugs may appear in future.

Is there necessity to use newNode() instead using makeNode(). The previous code 
was shorter.

There is no changes in execnodes.h except removed line. So I think execnodes.h 
could be removed from the patch.

I will wait.
