That argument would only hold if *every* use of OIDs in the jumbles
were replaced by names --- not only tables, but types, operators,
functions, etc.  I'm already concerned that the additional name
lookups will cost a lot of performance, and I think adding so many
more would probably be disastrous.

Well, it would mean that the query would no longer be considered "the
same".  You could argue either way whether that's good or bad.  But
yeah, this approach will break one set of use-cases to enable another

On the whole, I think my vote is to reject this patch.
