I think we should be careful to think about upgrade considerations
when adding this functionality.  Bumping the module version number to
add new functions is less likely to break things for users than
changing the return value of an existing SRF.  Maybe that's too far
down in the weeds to worry about, but it's a thought - especially for
pg_freespace, where there's no real efficiency benefit to have the
same function look at the FSM and the VM anyway.
