I've read a paper[1] on concurrency and recovery by Kornacker, C. Mohan and Hellerstein, which is presumably pretty close to Kornacker's thesis work (which I'll definitely read later). My understanding is that there's no need to implement predicate locking for GiST any more than for B+-trees -- it's a nice feature to prevent phantoms, but not a requirement for implementing page-level concurrency. So I haven't given any thought to implementing it. If I've misunderstood, please let me know.
