Applied with some revisions -

* I put the new predtest.c file into optimizer/util, which seemed a more
  plausible location than /path, and gave it its own header file.

* I thought check_partial_indexes() should stay in indxpath.c; it is an
  application of the theorem-proving module to indexes, not part of the
  prover proper.

* I took the opportunity to rename pred_test() to predicate_implied_by(),
  which seems more clear about what it's doing and in which direction.

As for the future...

The other main entry point should probably be called something like

I don't see anyone very excited about r-tree these days; have you
noticed that no one has stepped up to repair the known semantic errors?
I wouldn't spend any time on it in the prover.

The trouble with GiST is that the logical structure of each opclass
could be completely different from the next --- it's certainly not
possible to have a simple fixed table of implications.  Again, we have
much more important fish to fry, anyway ...
