Yeah, one of the proposals for allowing people to specify complicated
conditions about what to check was to tell them to do
        select checker(oid) from pg_proc where any-random-condition;
If the checker isn't user-callable then we lose that escape hatch, and
the only selection conditions that will ever be possible are the ones
we take the trouble to shoehorn into the CHECK FUNCTION statement.
Doesn't seem like a good thing to me.
