I think this is the point where I stopped my efforts in the past -- I 
guessed that a reference, in PostgreSQL relational algebra, could be a 
pair  of a pg_class oid together with the object's oid (having to query 
the pg_class oid each time seemed very expensive to me, then). I fiddled 
around with a little C programming, then I lost confidence in whether I 
was doing something reasonable -- I was afraid I did not know enough 
about the internals to predict a convincing outcome.

All the best,

     Nick
