We could just bump the wal version. Somewhat surprisingly that works if
both nodes are shutdown cleanly (primary first)... But the errors about
it are really ugly (will moan about unusable checkpoints), so it's
probably not a good idea. Especially as it'll make it an issue for all
users, not just the ones creating spgist indexes.
