TCL_ARRAYS is a kluge in my humble opinion, but we haven't really
settled on something better --- in particular, the challenge is to
fix it without breaking other things.  See the mailing list archives
for prior discussions, notably the thread starting at

http://fts.postgresql.org/db/mw/msg.html?mid=40589

Unless you want to tackle the problem of providing a replacement
feature, I'd recommend just adding the extra code :-(
