I share your pain, but the latter appears to be the only actionable
proposal at present.

A test suite was originally written, but not committed.
Why do we need to fix DDL when pg_dump remains annoying in the same way?
Why do we need to fix it now? Surely this will break things in later
releases, but not in 9.5, since we aren't ever going to add DDL to 9.5
