Not sure that that's a good idea at all.  We used to have
search-path-dependent rules for deciding which opclass was default,
and found that that was not good.  Also, I do not understand how
the queries and the indexes are tied together --- but doesn't an
index need to be built using the same rules that are later expected
by the queries?  If that varies on search_path it'll be too fragile.
