Do we have a clear idea about what to do with user tables that are
created WITH OIDS? Do we care about compatibility with that at all? Do
we generate this explicit "oid" column manually or do we just tell
users to use a serial or global sequence instead?

Personally I'd also like to see us get rid of the default_with_oids
setting -- I assume the existence of that is the reason why pgAdmin
and TOAD still generate table DDL with an explicit "WITH (OIDS=FALSE)"
