I think historically we've not bumped catversion, on the grounds that
there's no incompatibility with the backend as such. However, it is
kind of annoying that not updating means the regression tests fail.
Informally, I'm sure most developers take "catversion bump" to mean
"you need to initdb". So I'd support saying that an information_schema
change should include a catversion bump if it involves any changes in
regression test results.
