This attached patch is the rebased one towards the latest master branch.

I noticed that your proposed design also allows to unify ALTER code of
OPERATOR CLASS / FAMILY; that takes index access method for its
namespace in addition to name and namespace.
So, AlterObjectRename_internal and AlterObjectNamespace_internal have
four of special case handling to check name / namespace conflict.

The latest master lookups syscache within special case handing block
as follows:

    if (classId == ProcedureRelationId)
        HeapTuple   tup;
        Form_pg_proc proc;

        tup = SearchSysCacheCopy1(PROCOID, ObjectIdGetDatum(objid));
        if (!HeapTupleIsValid(tup))
            elog(ERROR, "cache lookup failed for function %u", objid);
        proc = (Form_pg_proc) GETSTRUCT(tup);

        IsThereFunctionInNamespace(NameStr(proc->proname), proc->pronargs,
                                   proc->proargtypes, nspOid);

But, we already pulls a relevant tuple from syscache on top of
AlterObjectNamespace_internal. So, I removed cache lookup code here.
