Er, it's link between LIKE and the ~=~ that's hard coded, however the
link between the operator class and the operator is nothing special,
that's why it's an operator class.

So I think it's easier that you think: just build the operator class
and make sure you use the right operator so the planner uses it. ILIKE
already maps to an operator...

Hope this helps,
