Until that enhancement is ready, it should be fine to keep the operator
class for the "box2df" type. It should work for functional indexes.

Actually, it would even be better to have it for the "grand unified
multidimensional bounding range" but we don't have that yet ...

So, let "geometry" go and focus on "box2df". Let us know !

Paul, do you have an url to the enhancement proposal ? So to have it in
on the record in the archive.
