[openstreetmap/openstreetmap-website] Performance: Optimizing database for map structure query, perhaps using PostGIS? (#2048)

Are there any plans to use the support of PostGIS in PostgreSQL? So that we may optimize querying times for answering questions like 
● How many features lie within 100m?
● What is the total length of a given road?
● What is the total area of water in my city?

It may be a major effort but would pay off at larger scales. We're storing map data in our own custom format, as defined in https://github.com/openstreetmap/openstreetmap-website/blob/master/db/structure.sql.
