Say I'm writing an extension X, and I want to process data values from another extension that creates type Y (e.g. an hstore), what's the best way to determine the Oid of type Y in my module X code? SPI code that runs "select 'something'::Y" and then examines the oid in SPI_tuptable? Or do we have a utility function I have missed that, given a type name and the current search path will give me back the type Oid?
