Use currval() on the PK sequence -- if you call it from within the query
that inserted a row, it is guaranteed to give you the last sequence
value that it generated.

However, I agree that one of the drawbacks of this scheme would be
breaking the OID in the status string returned by INSERT and similar
commands. Not too big a deal, IMHO (users can still get the same effect
by specifying WITH OIDS, or toggling the GUC var)...
