Yeah, that module was put together in a bit of a rush when I decided to
remove the JSON deparsing part of the DDL patch.

Well, since it's in src/test/modules I thought it was clear that the
intention is just to be able to test the pg_ddl_command type --
obviously not. I will add a README or something.

Well, I would prefer to have an output that says "unrecognized" and then
add more test cases to the SQL files so that there's not so much dead
code. I prefer that to removing the C support code, because then as
we add extra tests we don't need to modify the C source.

I wasn't thinking in having it be useful for copy-paste. My longer-term
plan is to have the JSON deparsing extension live in src/extensions.
