Oops... I thought we'd removed it.

Shouldn't it be an error to create a domain that conflicts with an existing
type?

bench=# create domain money as numeric(21,2);
CREATE DOMAIN
bench=# drop domain money;
ERROR:  "money" is not a domain
bench=# create domain money as numeric(21,2);
ERROR:  type "money" already exists
bench=# select version();
                                               version
