Yes, but I felt it better that I come up with my own separate tests.

Is there a reason why we can't provide the OID for ANY COMMAND... if
it's available?  I'm guessing it would end up involving having to
special case for every command. :/

Fair enough.

I don't have any strong feelings about it, so I'll bear it in mind for
future tests.

If that's your reasoning, then it would make sense to remove ANY
command support for it too.

*shrug* But ANY COMMAND triggers fire for it.  So I'd say either
remove support for that, or add a specific trigger.

Maybe.  If that's expected behaviour, I'll start expecting it then.

If these are all expected, does it in any way compromise the
effectiveness of DDL triggers in major use-cases?

Hmm... how does that work with regards to the commitfest process?

But I'll re-test when you let me know when you've committed your
remaining fixes to Github.
