You could satisfy '%foo%' using a regular and a reverse B-tree index,
and a bitmap AND. Which is interestingly similar to the way you proposed
to use a TIDBitmap within GIN.
Huh, can you? I can see doing "col LIKE 'foo%' OR reverse(col) LIKE
reverse('%foo')" with two btree indexes, but not a true %foo% ...
That should be AND, not OR..
Hmm. It is the same as far as I can see. Am I missing something?
You couldn't support more complex patterns directly, like 'foo%bar%foo',
but you could still split that into 'foo%' AND '%bar%' AND '%foo', and
recheck the matches against the original pattern
