Hm ... the only argument I can really make against that is that there'll
be no way to move such a table into shared memory; but there's probably
little hope of that anyway, given points made upthread.  The bitmapset
manipulations are a bit tricky but solvable, and I agree there's
something to be said for not tying this stuff so closely to the
mechanism for relfilenode recycling.
