Please find attached a rebase, which fixes an OID collision that crept in.

- The patch builds against master and passes "make check".
- The patch does not contain user-visible documentation or examples.
- The patch does not contain tests.

I got the following when I did a brief test.

SELECT * FROM copy_srf(filename => 'ls', is_program => true) AS t(l text);
server closed the connection unexpectedly
This probably means the server terminated abnormally
before or while processing the request.
The connection to the server was lost. Attempting reset: Failed.
