Great ! Just checked and most things after trivial changes are working !
We need to summarize changes and provide upgraide guide.
The main thing that is lacking at the moment is documentation. The
stuff Bruce has been working on will be good introductory material,
but we've got basically zip in reference material. I'll do some work

We have SQL reference and I'm sure Bruce should have it too. Bruce,
let me know when you do last changes, so I could read docs again
Also, we need to decide what to do with contrib/tsearch2, which is
currently DOA because of conflicts with the new core code. We could

time to work on that.
Probably, we could leave tsearch2 in contrib as a compat module and
explicitly define 8.4 will be the last release with tsearch2 support.
