I assume you're referring to
http://archives.postgresql.org/pgsql-patches/2005-09/msg00083.php ?

I'm curious as to the status of that patch... presumably it never made
it into the queue, but I'm not sure why since you seemed to address
Tom's concerns (other than not indexing IS NOT NULL, which I'm not sure
is all that useful...)
