Including rel.h in elog.h is really really bad.  Even if it was only
relcache.h it would be bad, because elog.h is included *everywhere*.

Hm.  These new functions do not operate on Relations at all, so having
them on relcache.c doesn't seem to me very good ...

How about putting the functions in elog.c as Peter suggests, and the
declarations in a new header (say relationerror.h or something like
that)?  That new header would #include relcache.h so if you need to set
those fields you include the new header and you have everything you
