Well I'm not sure whether you caught it, but Tom did come up with a
work-around that works with the current infrastructure if all the columns
involved are the same datatype.

You can create a regular btree index on the expression array[a,b,c] and then
do your lookup using array[a,b,c] > array[a1,b1,c1].

This will only work in 7.4, not previous releases, for several reasons.
