:-)

Actually, there are some things about it that I'm not entirely happy
with, but I haven't brought them up because I don't have a clear idea
what I think we should do about them.  The special-case hack to handle
the "oids" option is one of them.... another, possibly related, is
that I wish we could decouple the options-validation logic from the
backend storage representation.  But those are issues for a future
thread.  I do think it's pretty well-done overall.

It appears that it has never been there.

$ git log -Sneed_initialization master src/backend/access/common/reloptions.c
commit f35e4442a6c9893e72fe870d9e1756262d542027

    Change the reloptions machinery to use a table-based parser, and provide
    a more complete framework for writing custom option processing routines
    by user-defined access methods.

    Catalog version bumped due to the general API changes, which are going to
    affect user-defined "amoptions" routines.

That was the original patch that added need_initialization, and it
didn't add that line.
