AFAICS the point of oid2name is to provide a mapping between disk file
names and table names.  As such, what it *ought* to be doing is
suppressing views, since those don't have disk files --- they are only
cluttering the listing with irrelevant data.  If we put that in, there'd
be no need to special-case information_schema.
