Another option I'm looking at is skipping the privilege checks when VACUUM
recurses to a TOAST table. This won't allow you to VACUUM the TOAST table
directly, but it would at least address the originally-reported issue .
Since you can't ANALYZE, REFRESH, or LOCK TOAST tables, this isn't a
problem for those commands. CLUSTER and REINDEX seem to process relations'
TOAST tables without extra privilege checks already. So with the attached
patch applied, you wouldn't be able to VACUUM, CLUSTER, and REINDEX TOAST
tableѕ directly (unless you were given MAINTAIN or pg_maintain), but you
could indirectly process them by specifying the main relation.
I don't know if this is good enough. It seems like ideally you should be
able to VACUUM a TOAST table directly if you have MAINTAIN on its main
