So common that no one has ever asked for this feature before?
Sometimes one gets the feeling that one is the only one in the universe doing
something one considers "quite common":-)

You would need to get buy-in that that community wants the relocation of
pg_largeobject to be supported via an SQL command, and at that point
pg_upgrade would be modified to support that. It is unlikely pg_upgrade
is going to be modified to support something that isn't supported at the
SQL level. Of course, you can create a custom version of pg_upgrade to
Doesn't "ALTER TABLE pg_largeobject SET TABLESPACE myspace_lo" count as being
"at the SQL-level"?
The whole problem seems to come from the fact that BLOBs are stored in
pg_largeobject which for some reason is implemented as a system-catalogue in
PG, which imposes all kinds of weird problems, from a DBA-perspective.
Can we pay you at EDB for making such a custom version of pg_upgrade for 9.6?
