Recent events have made me notice the OID handling.
AFAICS, OIDs are just a sequence with a max value that fits in a uint.
So ISTM that we should just strip out the OID handling code and just
have a system sequence defined like this
CREATE SEQUENCE _pg_oid
Which would then make it easier to have a sequence for each toast
table and a sequence for lobs.
Not sure its important now, but maybe it will reduce the size of the
executable and avoid oid-specific bugs.
