IMO there's next to no value in testing that scenario anyway, since
nobody would ever use it in the field. What *would* be of value is
testing upgrades from previous release versions. Probably that will
take some work in the buildfarm infrastructure as well as figuring out a
non-problematic test case to use, but that's the direction we need to
The other reasonable use-case for pg_upgrade is migrating a development
or beta-test installation across a catversion bump, but again the
tablespace directory name is not a restriction. Perhaps we could have
a test that involves checking out the
commit-just-before-the-last-catversion-change and seeing if we can
migrate from that.
