I think that on an abstract OODB level they did the right thing.
The only argument against changing would be if it breaks the
existing code for too many applications.  pghackers is probably
not the best place to get a sense of that --- maybe you should
bring up the point on pgsql-sql (and perhaps pgsql-general?)
