I vote against (c). I'm not sure which of (a) or (b) is better.
We've talked about allowing foreign tables to inherit from regular
tables and visca versa, and certainly, in that situation, tableoid
would be useful. But I don't think we've made a definitive decision
about that. I stripped that functionality out of the original patch
because it introduced a bunch of warts that we didn't have time to
figure out how to fix, and it's not clear to me that anyone's spent
any time thinking about that since then.
