This is a difficult email to write but it seems GIT isn't going to make
it into 8.3. There seems to be too many open implementation questions
to move forward. It seems the internal API changes need more thought.
I somehow feel that if HOT wasn't being considered for 8.3 we might have
gotten GIT, but with limited resources I think there was more focus on
HOT, perhaps rightly so.
These patches will be held for 8.4:
o Grouped Index Tuples (GIT)
o Bitmap scan changes
o Stream bitmaps (API change for Group Index Tuples)
o Maintaining cluster order on insert
I believe Heikki is in agreement on this.
