I'm not sure what you're plus-oneing here, but I hope it's not the
ability to set custom reloptions altogether.  As I interpret what Robert
was saying, it was "let's not have *unvalidated* reloptions", with which
I'm fine --- it only means we need to make sure custom reloptions are
validated, in some way yet to be agreed.

I agree that it has gotten too late for this in 9.4, also.

I don't see what's so ugly about reloptions as they currently exist,
