lo_import() has an another prototype which takes second argument to
specify LOID. Isn't it available to restore a large object with
correct LOID? For example, lo_import('/etc/profile', 1234)
Or, if you intend to restore metadata in the second lo_import(),
ALTER LAEGE OBJECT and GRANT LARGE OBJECT enable to set up metadata
of a certain large object.
Or, am I missing the problem?

A large object consists of multiple tuples within pg_largeobject.
If we added lomowner and lomacl into pg_largeobject, we have to manage
all the pages in a large object to keep consistent state.
