I'd prefer it if we could arrange not to need any absolute paths
embedded into the test, because maintaining tests that require such is
a real PITA --- instead of just committing the actual test output, one
has to reverse-convert it to a ".source" file.

I suggest that instead of testing the server-side lo_import/lo_export
functions, perhaps you could test the psql equivalents and write and
read a file in psql's working directory.  I think we could do without
the Moby Dick extract too ...
