Woops, good catch.  Fixed.

Yeah, we have a lot of places that check foo == InvalidOid or foo !=
InvalidOid rather than using OidIsValid().  That might or might not be
worth changing, but I don't see a strong need for this patch to change
this particular instance.

I agree.  Changed.

I agree, done.  In fact, aren't we leaking a syscache reference here?
And if so, should we fix it in HEAD and the backbranches also?  I'm
tempted not to bother because, after all, how often do you invoke
DefineOpFamily(), but maybe someone else has a different opinion?

This looks like another syscache reference leak.  I have changed it to
use get_namespace_oid() in the patch, but we need to decide whether to
fix this in pre-9.1 releases.
